you could try using masking fluid for the raindrop shapes before painting the leaves, then painting each drop individually after removing m.fluid. Sounds laborious, but needn't be. Depends on what kind of effect you want, how "photo-realist" you want to get. I would always prefer the option of really looking/seeing and experimenting, rather than going for "how-to" techniques. Hope this helps!
