Raindrops
After sketching on wood, I begin to form the clay into raindrops
With a stockpile of clay balls, I have split each one in half for the leaf surface
Building up the sections of the leaf with more and more clay
With clay bonded to the panel, I then paint a base colour over the whole piece and begin to paint the droplets
 

 

I paint in the spine of the leaf to give it structure and the leaf sections
Almost there...
The finished piece
