Snowdrop raindrop 2

With the second painting, I masked out the snowdrops with their leaves and the raindrops. I dropped in a background wet in wet and added salt while still wet. When all was dry, I worked on the flowers, adding tone wet in wet, and the leaves and raindrops.
With this vignette style, you have to make your initial shape with the first wash and then paint within it.
The paintings are nothing like the photo that you see below...but that's the magic of watercolour!
