Wet, wet, wet (No.3)

I could not resist starting the raindrops, I probably should have finished the washes on the leaves first, but I did not want to wait any longer. The foreground leaf is finished and I am just lifting areas on the leaf behind.This is my favourite part of the painting.

Wet, wet, wet

I have just started laying green washes down, increasing the intensity of the colour as I keep adding more washes. When I am happy with the tonal values I will add the raindrops. At this stage I am always impatient and want to be painting the raindrops.
