This week’s challenge was based off of the fairytale “The Frog Prince”. It was a fun challenge to do, but how couldn’t it have been? Haha. I drew and painted this piece from life. The frog is actually a cast iron bottle opener, but I bought him as a paper weight on a road trip with my friend to Cape Cod, MA. I did struggle drawing him as perspective from life is SO MUCH harder to nail than when drawing from a photo, but painting him was fun! While I did the frog in watercolor, I did his crown in acrylic because I wanted a ‘true’ gold. If you zoom in on the crown, you can actually see the light reflecting off the pigment!
