Illustration Friday - Tango




When I saw the theme this week, the image that came into my head straight away was frogs, don't ask me why. I just love them and think that they have a lot of character. Yesterday we took the boys to the zoo and there in the reptile section were some green tree frogs. They are so beautiful we took a picture. The frogs that I used in my illustration are green tree frogs from Costa Rica that I found on the net, the markings/colouring is pretty much what I painted my frogs like. Stunning bright colours. So the scene that I ended up painting is a family of frogs, with the parents having a nice tango on a lily pad on a summers evening. With the kids watching. I really enjoyed doing this one, it was fun! I've posted up the pic we took of the frog at the zoo yesterday which gave me the inspiration.

These frogies are just adorable. They remind me of an old childrens book I use to read. :)
