Red Eyed Tree Frog - Acrylic on streched canvas 100x80cm

Red Eye Tree Frog - today I painted the background yellow, and all the "black" areas with Phthalo Blue.
The areas which show shading have been 'dry-brushed' with grey.
I painted the final highlight bits in white already to keep the spaces as a reference point for when I finish the painting.

tomorrow I will be painting the eyes as they will be the focal point...

Red Eyed Tree Frog - Acrylic on stretched canvas 100 by 80cm

Red Eye Tree Frog - This is my latest venture in Acrylic painting. I
t is a streched canvas, 1metre by 80cm, of a red-eyed-tree-frog.

The original was from a photo taken at Sun City in South Africa and scanned onto an overhead, then 'beamed' onto my canvas whilst I 'traced' around the image.

I will be posting pics of my painting progress here in various stages until the finished work is accomplished.

Trying out with Acrylic

Starting with 6 and 8 inch canvas blocks I thought I'd give painting in acrylic a go and was inspired by the Agave plants for their structural form.
Can't go wrong with simple lines I thought - so these are the results in different colour combinations.
