Artist's description:

This pastel incorporates two of my favourites: favourite animal to paint and my favourite flower (not just to paint, so remember this around my birthday!).

Flowers I find extra-challenging, so when found an image of a curious little frog on top of a tulip, I decided to give it a go. But in stead of going full colour, I decided to paint this pastel using a muted colour palette.

The inspiration for the almost faded, antiqued feel of the final painting came from my husband Brad’s photographic art: he tends to favour a muted colour palette for his images, and desaturates many of them. I think it worked well in this painting as well. What do you think?
