Paint Party Friday and Sunday Sketches 'I'm the king of the pond'.....
Hi guys, first up this week is a little canvas I worked on. I decided I wanted to recreate my frog princess in this mixed media piece. I used Japanese papers, painted over them with acrylic paint. I felt like it give the painting a bit more depth and texture and it was fun to do something different.
I have added this little cutie to my shop as I think it would look lovely in a little girls bedroom :0)
I really took my time painting the sides of the canvas too! :0)
This sketch was another exercise I set myself, I wanted to play around with facial expression. This girl looks unimpressed with something ;0)
Lastly this is my latest piece in my frog series. 'I'm the king of the pond'....I'm sure I don't have to explain my inspiration behind this one? I painted this piece in gouache paint with some coloured pencil on top! :0) I really love how bright the gouache is, i would love to try it on watercolour paper next :0)
I'm finding my frog series a great source of inspiration, it's great to paint one of these when i'm lacking some inspiration or my muse has disappeared :0) They always make me smile too! ;0)
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and look forward to catching up on what you've all been doing!
