Kimono in the rain

It was raining today and the model rather kindly stood in her silk kimono under the eave of the little pavilion while we were all under cover nearby.  The proportions of the pavilion were modified in my painting.  It had a fairly large roof and smaller detail on top, so I reduced the roof (so much over the model's head -- it was too massive) and gave the detail a bigger role to play.
