I went for a walk through the woods near my home on a rainy spring day and I could see dark clouds approaching the area, I knew I was in for another downpour. I took several photographs of the rain-soaked trilliums that lined part of the path, the petals were so wet they had become translucent. The lighting was perfect, until it started to rain! Luckily I took my shots before my camera got too wet.
I loved painting the detailed raindrops on the petals and leaves, I may look to do some additional rainy botanical pieces in the near future. Maybe Lily of the Valley?
