Frog with Pansies, whimsical illustration by Texas artist Theresa Bayer

Title: Frog with Pansies
Size: 4x6 inches
Medium: Acrylic on Everlast panel
Genre: animals, illustration, fantasy

I've been working on painting faster, and have found that if I paint thin, it's much easier to go fast. This one is a little tighter than what I've been doing lately. Still experimenting with this thinner paint body; maybe I can loosen it up just slightly. I also am enjoying putting glazes over an area, to either knock it back or give it some extra color.

I'm also taking an online illustration course given by award winning writer/illustrator, Mark Mitchell. It's giving me lots of great info and ideas.
