It discusses the rain and the windscreen as a visual subject matter for artistic interpretation and expression. This paper will also examine the interplay between rain droplets and the windscreen with the aim of using the impressions to create paintings on 2-dimensional surfaces. The paintings created are based on the Visual, aesthetics and appealing amoebic forms observed across the surface of the windscreen.
