Everything in the garden

How beautiful water droplets are, decorating the garden with glimmering jewels. I took this photograph with the intention of playing with it in Photoshop, but somehow in this case I don't think that you can really improve on nature. These are are real colours on this little beauty that just opened itself to the sunshine this morning. And, despite this being and English country garden in the summertime, those glimmering droplets were not rain but hosepipe jewels. For tis most hot here today my friends and my poor little garden babies were very thirsty.

I'm rather proud of this photo. What do you think? I may try to paint it, but not sure how to capture those bubbles. How do you paint bubbles? Any advice?

My entry for Inspiration Avenue's Garden challenge this week.

  1. Beautiful photo. Waterdrops to me are one of the hardest things to capture in paint. I wish I had some advice if any it would be practice.

  7. Such a stunning image - it doesn't need anything doing to it I don't think, it's perfect as it is!

    I'd love to see your painting of it though, if you decide to do one. I don't remember ever trying to paint raindrops, so I'm no help at all, sorry!

  9. A beautiful picture. It would be interesting to paint the flower. I would love to see how you do the droplets. I love to paint oceans, and rivers, and lakes, etc but do not know how to paint a droplet.

  11. This is indeed breath-taking...the colors and the droplets...just beautiful! I have a tiny book that was suppossed to help with painting water droplets...I'll dig it up and let you know. I didn't have much luck, but then again,
    I probably gave up on the first try!

  12. Sadly, I wouldn't know the first thing about painting bubbles but I can say this is one of the most beautiful natural flower photos I have ever seen. I would buy a set of cards with the image just as it is from your shop - SO gorgeous!!♥
