"Droplet"

5¾ x 5¾"
watercolor on mounted Arches Cold Press (Art Board)
Sold

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.
