How to put this to paint??? Well, obviously, my rendition doesn't do God's handiwork justice, but it does qualify as a celebration of that small morning gift! This is a great example of how God romances us with his gifts in creation! But, I digress. I decided to use a more experimental approach. I used some interference paint (gold to red) in the background, mixed with a light yellow. That gave a very reflective background on which to put the image. Then, I worked with the image. Putting down the essence of what I saw in my garden - trying to capture the sense of water droplets without becoming formulaic and tedious.
In actuality, it does have a very reflective quality about it, which isn't so obvious in my photo.
