Frog Rock

6" x 6" oil on panel

please contact me if interested

I think that this rock looks a little bit like a frog. He seems ready to jump off the table. It is truly amazing the different values and colors of rocks. There are as many, if not more, than there are rocks. Then, there is temperature difference. I could repaint all of these changing the background cloth from warm to cool, and cool to warm. There are never endless exercises to be done and paintings to be painted.

You certainly are having fun with rocks. A Rockin' Good Time! Thanks for the inspiration to see things with with new eyes and new color and temperature variations.

Pam, I think these concepts of when to use, warm vs cool, thin paint vs thick paint, greyed color vs saturated, and the various effects that can be created, is endlessly fascinating! Thanks for commenting on this in your blog post!
