Rainy Day art

As the rain lashed down on the Thames this weekend I was in bed with a horrendous cold. Google became my closest friend, followed by Boots’ fake Lemsip and nose-soothing tissues. After taking a picture through the rain-spattered window I began to wonder what how successful art has been in capturing the experience of rain and whether I would be particularly fond of it. A quick google search has led me to the following images which took my feverish fancy:
