Frog Demo 1


#frog #cutefrog #frogpainting

Title: Frog Demo #1
Medium: Acrylic on illustration board
Size: 6x7 inches
Genre: Animals

The other day I did a demo for the Austin Palette Club on "limited palette." This frog painting is done using only 3 colors: thalo blue and burnt sienna, plus titanium white. Yes, it really does make a green when those two colors are mixed and white is added. You have to use the "green shade" of thalo blue to make this happen; the "red shade" of thalo won't work.  Model was a toy plastic frog, set up next to a little glass bottle.
