Smile Dewdrop tutorial

This is a read only thread, the original, for posting, can be found here.

Here is a quickie on painting dewdrops in acrylics.
In each example ( to show different colors ) I have
A........... blend dark version of background through mid to almost white.
B........... added bottom shadow, this can be faded or sharp.
C........... with added highlight shows how effective when finished.
Of course the smoother the blend the better the effect.
The mid color should be almost the background or a touch brighter.
These examples are a bit rough but you can see the idea. Have fun.

Re: Dewdrop tute

Thank you bhavani and Marianne, they are rough aren't they, and I forgot the shadow on green B. That's what I get for hurrying, but if you keep the blends smooth you can use almost any shape.
