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...
Watercolor in the Pentalic Nature sketchbook.
I totally understand this obession. I have the same one with photos of roses. I love seeing paintings of your garden.
They look real...well done!
Wow! Those are very well done! When enlarged you can see they are painted, but on the small photo it looked to me like you just dripped some water on your painting to fool us all ;-)
Very beautiful and so realistic.
what a lovely obsession. Keep obsessing!
This is so beautiful! Your water droplets are very delicate, transparent, and very realistic!!! Great job!
So glad you captured these before the hail came.
Wow, the droplets look very realistic! Fantastic job.
Great highlights are your secret on the water droplets, and what a good job you did!
Those water drops are so realistic!
This looks great, and the water drops are very realistic! Great work!
I love your water drops! getting all the highlights and reflections is so tricky! Great job.
This is so beautiful. I love it! =)
Splendid water droplets!
Wow! This is wonderful! Very convincing water droplets and beautiful flowers! Wish you could send us your rain!
