The Yellow Harlequin Frog: An Exploration Into Color

I wouldn't sincerely try to convince you that this is yellow. My range of blues is wider than my yellows, and yet not enough. The next color study I do will push the barriers of range, to make you believe some things are closer than they appear... others further. Something about shadow... more surprise, still convincing. Atmospheric perspective through value range, and temperature, then some shadow, more unity in blending, more use of the complements. Still, he's a sweet little frog, and the final addition to the sketchbook Everyone We Know project. The sketchbooks are going to Atlanta (Feb. 27), Philadelphia (March 4), Chicago (March 8), Brooklyn (March 13), St Louis, Boston, and Washington DC. For a list of venues and dates: go here
