I am continuing with the frogs very slowly, since it really is the most fun of all, and it seems to go more quickly than any other stage of the whole process. So I’m painting them bit by bit, sometimes taking a day or two off. I’ll continue posting photos as I go along, but it won’t be every day’s progress.
You will notice that most of the frogs are incomplete. This is because many of them are patterned with black, and I don’t want to use that pigment before painting the lighter colors for the vines behind the frogs. It could easily bleed into other areas if a bit of water touches it. Actually, the same is true of the strong red or blue pigments, but I’m taking my chances with those.
