    Title – Mr Grumpy (or Angry Frog)
    Description – Fell in love with this angry little fella – he just looks like I feel sometimes – grumpy and fed up haha. I used the app Arty to find the polychromos colours and it really helped with getting closer to the colours of the photo and to add to the realism, of course I still layered from light to dark. Attempting to get the texture of the frog took ages and a lot of stabbing the paper with the pointed tip of the pencils.
    Medium – Faber Castell Polychromos, Panpastel & then gamsol for background and more coloured pencil
    Paper & Size – Art Spectrum Colourfix Smooth Rich Beige A4
