With another rainy weekend around the corner, I couldn't help but feel inspired!
Step 1: Began the foundation of the illustration with these basic shapes
Step 2: Added in streaks of rain varying in contrast and angle for depth
Step 3: Created a texture in Photoshop that replicated rippling water to place over the puddles and using a brush, I sprinkled water droplets around each ripple
Step 4: Used another watercolor brush for clouds and spent some time fine tuning details for the foreground, background, duck, and reflection
