watercolor on mounted Arches Cold Press (Art Board)
What did I say about wanting to paint loose brushstrokes? Guess that did not happen here. I don't know why I kept it so tight. I was really drawn to these lovely little water droplets, especially the one at the tip of the leaf.
Reference photo was taken on October 16. I decided to go the the Gardens early to catch the morning sun. They had just watered the plants on the walk down from the rose circle. I took many photos of leaves with water droplets, and liked this one the best.
