Sorbus vilmorinii berries

These pale pink berries on the mountain ash with their clear drops of rain caught my eye. It was not a good subject for a watercolour picture. I thought I’d mask out the berries and wash the background in first, but when I took the mask off, the berry shapes were all blobby and I ended up having to go round each berry in a very fussy way. Also, the paint I used on the twigs bled into the sky. All in all, rather a laboured effort.
