We've had a lot of rain this summer, and I've spent a lot of time on the deck after the rain. I've become obsessed with water droplets and how they look on the petals and leaves of all the plants around me. For such a simple thing, a water droplet is amazingly complex to paint realistically. I've painted them every which way I can and it's been lots of fun.
These are how water droplets look on the Red Morn petunias. Next to the roses, these are the prettiest.
Today my deck is covered with hail - small, and not very damaging but still...
