Sunny Days a Coming

This guy has been keeping me busy the last couple days, a bit larger than usual which allowed me to get more detail in the eye and in the body. Lots of fun! I also loved painting the water drops on the leaves. My one weak spot, and something I really need to practice drawing, are the little toes on these guys. It is hit and miss with me when it comes to them. I tend to do them better in oil paint as I can go over it a few times until I get it just perfect. Watercolour is not that forgiving (though, I could invest in a tube of opaque watercolour for times like this).
