A4 from a pixabay reference. The red colors pulled my attention and thought it might work well in acrylics . C+c welcome

Green and red always work well together emphasizing the subject such as this fellow here! It is a lovely painting.

Good work on the colourful little fellow Christel. The bark of the tree is also so well painted.

I like the red and green together and really like the composition, with the diagonal branch. Great detail on the little frog :)

His green body, red eyes, and bright reddish hands and feet make him one of the more colorful frog. I hope you all enjoy him as much as I do!

Nicely done Christel. The frog has attitude. :)

Great work, Christel! The colors work beautifully together. I like how it feels like a rainy day by the colors you used - tree frogs seem to love those rainy days. :)

This works very well Christel, the background is outstanding, I love the textures.

Frogs make a great subject, looks like a green tree frog to me, we've been lucky enough to find a few at home lately, fortunately the cane toads haven't eaten them all.

Thanks Jenna and Shane! I've been wondering what type of frog it is.

A lovely frog Christel and the green and red complementary colors work well on him. Great job on the tree branch too!

I always have such trouble trying to get a muted or 'out of focus' background in acrylics. Wonderful job, high level of realism on the frog and tree branch, also
