Okay, I just put this in as a little bit of fun. My class wanted to explore greens in more detail. The frog made the perfect subject as he offered us a choice of light yellowy green hues and subtle blue/green shadows. Green warmed up with a little permanent rose provides the complimentary and the deep dark muddy green created the important contrast found in the background. He is rather sweet don't you think?
I was born in SA during the seventies and enjoyed a colourful childhood. I have always been passionate about painting and drawing and found plenty of stimulating subjects around me. After studying Graphic Design in Durban I worked as a Graphic Artist for various agencies in SA. I finally moved over to the UK in 1997 and have enjoyed many adventures since. My career has been an exciting, versatile one so far and I teach many enthusiastic adults how to paint and draw, as well as demonstrating for art groups in Surrey. I still love to paint outdoors and in my studio. I look forward to many more exciting and rewarding artistic challenges.
