Painting Frogs

Its been a while since I posted here. I have been so busy doing craft, I haven't had alot of time for my art. My most recent is this oil painting on canvas I did from a photograph I found online. I can't remember exactly where. This painting is pretty small. Its only 150 x 210. I really like the way it turned out considering that apart from the 4 ATCs I did, this is the only other oil painting I've done and so far, its the largest, even thought its small!.

I am a naturalist illustrator, I have never done frogs but now i am inspired to do so. You have captured all the differing textures realistically. Good work!
