Tree Frog in Watercolor - Basic Color Mixing and Realism
Fun Frog With Water Drops
Tree Frog in Watercolor
Tree frogs have amazing color patterns, and they're easy to paint, for a fun, successful watercolor painting lesson. If you love this guy, you could do a whole series of little frogs for cards or paintings. (You can paint the entire leaf green and skip the lines.)
So, give these guys a try today. Invite a friend to paint with you to double your fun.
This painting turns out well with almost any watercolor paper and paints. A brush with a sharp point is really helpful for the detail.
Extra information on watercolor paints and colors are included in the introduction. Using good basic colors (as opposed to mixes) not only helps your paintings look professional, it makes mixing gorgeous colors easier, so I included a brief description, explanation and links to some useful colors.
Hi, I'm Deb Watson - a self taught artist and long time watercolor teacher
My story is simple.
I loved drawing from childhood, but was discouraged from art as a waste of time. So, I became a nurse, worked at a lot of hospitals and raised a family. But I kept painting.
Over time, I became better at the realism I loved, and just kept working toward improving through painting and self-study. I've always enjoyed painting scenes from my life and small town community (which I call my Small Town America series).
My paintings are not usually famous or majestic subjects, often they're just everyday stuff I see around. But I see so much beauty there, and show it to the rest of the world by painting it.
Now, my watercolors have been in exhibits and won awards across the nation. Yet, it's when my art connects me to other people that it's really done what I wanted, and teaching certainly does that!
