Gray Tree Frog Painting in Pastel

Alas, I was able to finish the frog painting and I feel satisfied enough to call it done! I have to admit that everything about this piece drove me to edge and back...the green color, the fern leaves, the pattern/texture of the frog's skin. It soon became apparent as the painting progressed that it proved more challenging than I expected.

If there's one thing I learned from this painting, it is to not be afraid to challenge yourself and push your limits; you just might be surprised at the results.

Congrats! You did a great shot. I'm still struggling with the Monarchs.

It was worth all the frustration and soul-searching Colette. Another beautiful pastel painting. I'm amazed at how much detail you get into such a small piece.

Congratulations, Colette! You not only finished but you finished SO successfully. The details on the frog alone is challenging! Great work!!
