Firstly I need to say that I got the black and white idea from 'djibouti4'
- I feel that needs mentioning, since he pretty much inspired this painting! I've never tried painting in just black and white before!
In fact I think this painting should be dedicated it to him...! This is one awesome guy - super kind, super supportive and super talented! Please go check out his work, I guarantee it's worth your time and effort, and if you do, say Anna sent 'ya!
So, I guess you can sort of see I have just a little obsession with tree frogs... they're sooooo cute! And actually ideal for painting, as they don't have too much horribly difficult detail going on, like feathers and fur and the like.. But mostly because they're cute!
It was a full body painting, but I didn't like the body very much, it was kind of badly done (Rushed, I'll admit it) and he was sitting REALLY awkwardly so I really couldn't get it right.
For what it's worth I think I like it better cropped like this!
I think it suits the title better..
I'm going to retreat to my room and carry on reading 'Ninteen Eighty Four' now.....
Hope you like it!
