This week in art class: droplets

on a leaf.  Plus, because I became bored with droplets and leaf textures towards the end of the day, a ladybird.

Those droplets are fantastic! At first glance, I thought I was looking at a photograph.

Usually I tend a bit towards 'why paint this if I could just photograph it' but honestly my attempt to photograph it was appallingly unsuccessful by comparison :-D

The technique is surprisingly simple: the leaf was harder to paint than the droplets! I'm really pleased I learned how to do it.

Actually, the hardest bit was trying to take a photo close enough to a leaf to act as a reference. I didn't really succeed and so my leaf does not look much like alchemilla mollis, but I think it could be a mallow of some kind (even if it didn't start as one!)
