I’ m not sure how well known I’ve made it, but I love frogs. I actually Paint them a lot, but usually I paint horned frogs, Bullfrogs and other big fat ground dwelling species. Last night i started new paintings to try out painting the negative spaces rather than the positive. ( WIP here) I chose to add some dart frogs, specifically Darts from the Oophaga Pumilio (Strawberry) family, as I think they are really beautiful, and come I so many colour morphs.
I finished them late last night. In all I’m rather happy, they have a much looser, “painterly” look, especially the one with the yellow frog.
In all I think the negative space painting can be really effective. I shall be doing more.
