In part two we first apply texture to our blended colours and then block in the frogs basic shape and form.
With blocking in completed we now move on to refining the shape and form in the frogs head and then apply initial detail.
In the fourth part of this lesson we finish painting the body of the frog and then move on to adding texture to the algae and create a murky water look.
In this final part we paint the supporting elements, the lily stocks. Here we learn how to soften hard lines that draw the eye out of the composition.
