Red Eyed Tree Frog - 3 - "Green series"

Red Eyed Tree Frog - acrylic on canvas - green series

Red Eyed Tree Frog 3 - Part 5

And so the red eye tree frog painting develops to this...

I don't think I have been defeated by green.
In fact I'm now beginning to actually think this is the best frog painting I have done so far.

For the face I used a lot of lemon yellow and blue lake. No white at all in that mix.
When the painting dried, I used white for the highlights and fixed up the eyes some more.

My wife thinks there is too much white on the face so I might have to re-green the frog a little...
Anyway, the next pic on here will be the final of this painting and then I start another one with the red leaves.

    Do you remember the website from which you took this image of a frog looking over a leaf?

    Sorry, I can't help you on that one. I have it from a postcard called "Here's looking at you".
