Aquarelle - Tuesday from 2 - 4.30pm with Marina Kulik

We used last weeks' Tuesday afternoon to do some research to dewdrops on red fruit. Cherries and tomatoes mostly. It soon became clear that it works best if the dewdrop is slightly lighter than the surface it is on. Paint the dewdrop with clear water on the coloured surface and lift a tiny bit of the paint on one side. Add some extra pigment on the other side. When the drop is dry, add a really dark shadow and scratch a highlight for an amazing effect! The basics in the picture above - and the pictures below show the absolutely stunning results:
