A major work on vellum by illustrator Isabelle Brent. In this painting the frog takes centre stage. The wings of the dragonfly have been dusted with gold, the butterfly adds contrast. Many of the plants were picked from the garden and observed to add a touch of realism in this picture. Semi-hidden within, the insects are waiting to be discovered and counted. A painting for young and old and for future generations.
watercolour, calf-skin vellum and gold leaf
