Follow this Simple 3 Step Guide:
Paint background first, this could be anything from leaves to flowers
Draw dew drops with pencil, and use a wet brush with clear water to wet bottom of the drops, then use sponge or tissue paper to lift some of the background colour off
Add gradient colours to top of the drops and shadows, once dry, use tip of a sharp knife to scratch the paper to create highlights, and finally use the same technique in step 2 to lift colour off the centre of the shadow to create water reflection in the shadows.
And done! Simple isn’t it? Now give it a go yourself 🙂
…I have always loved dew drops, they are such magical little things…
