Hi Everybody,

Hope this Valentine’s Day finds you all well.

Today’s piece is my first attempt to paint a creature. I was attracted to painting this from the wonderful varieties of colour on these tiny  tree frogs.

Little Prince Oil & Acrylic on Slate 16" X 14"

Little Prince
Oil & Acrylic on Slate
16″ X 14″

This little guy took approximately a month to complete. Using a slate, I  first painted the background with acrylics and washes and the frog himself by using oils.  The original background had been Indian Red colours which I changed to a mix of Cadmium Yellow  Indian Yellow and a touch of Sienna.

I believe it is quite fitting on this special day to post him for all the folks out there in our world who may wish they had a frog to kiss … just in case!

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone !
