I was recently commissioned to create three (6″ x 8″) watercolor and ink artworks. My friend had a specific request. That I paint a frog, cricket and lizard in greens and browns. These were going to be baby gifts for a boy’s room.
I loved creating these paintings. I was also able to add in a few tiny hints of sky blue, teal, yellow and gold. I had never painted anything like this before so I searched the internet for drawing inspiration. Once the drawings were complete, I began painting in layers of color, translucent greens and browns, building on depth and darkness. At the end I added in a few accents of gold.
Here are the paintings with a close up detail of each.click on image to enlarge
