Water droplets are the best (apparently)

Let’s all take a moment to appreciate the water droplets in Jan van Huysum’s still life so aptly titled Fruit Piece (1722). Clink on the link for an excellent image of the painting in amazing resolution that allows you to explore the work in great detail. 

And little bugs here and there of course searching for food and water droplets to make their little tummies happy! 

One more just because! 

Honestly, go and have a look at the original image for some ‘I paint with a brush that has only a hair on it’ kind of detail. Let me know what you think of this work, as you can see I am personally fascinated by the water droplets.
