How to paint a....

Frog beginner's guide



Start by painting a pale green circle in the middle of the forehead. Then add two circles on each side of the larger one, slightly higher up. Then paint two swooping lines around the outside edge of the eyes, stretching halfway down the cheeks. Finish them with four short lines and dots – these are the fingers.


You now have the basic form of your frog. In the top left and right bumps, paint semi-circles in pale yellow, then paint white semi-circles beneath them. Paint the dots at the end of the fingers with pale yellow.


Take a sponge and dab some pale yellow on the lower bump at the top of the nose. Now take a thin brush and outline the entire body, then outline the eyes and paint the pupils. Finally, draw the nostrils and the mouth.
