Raindrops study

I’m not usually a fan of rainy days but I decided to use to rain to my advantage and do a watercolour study of it. It is very interesting to see how raindrops behave – each one is like a mirror reflecting so many different angles of light and colour! I think that each drop looks beautiful; like a diamond.

Living in England, I have seen the rain out of this window thousands of times, so I know how it looks. However, it is harder to convey this familiar image than I expected. It is easy for the marks to just looks like muddy lines, and not like raindrops at all! It is also not easy to show the wet, three dimensional feeling that it gives in real life, on paper.

This is what I produced after an afternoon of studying the rain:
