Toad Sunning

Oil Painting Animal Art Toad Frog Amphibians

Oil on canvas hardboard, 5" x 7"

It's toad season and they appear in places I expect them but they still startle me sometimes!  I caught this guy lazily sunning himself on a landscape block near my herb garden.  He didn't mind at all that I took photos of him at different angles.  I liked this pose of the toad with his long cast shadow.  The fun part was defining his basic shapes quickly and then adding some bumps at the end to finish the painting.  I think my use of a limited primary palette with this one helped me also.
