How to draw a frog, step-by-step

DiceIn this step-by-step demonstration of how to draw a leopard frog we will explore watercolor technique and learn how bands and spots show the contour of limbs and the orientation of body planes. We also explore how to suggest amphibian’s moist and shiny skin with crisp white highlights. This demonstration is a good example of the way that watercolorists add layers of paint, starting lighter and working progressively darker. 

On the die, observe how the shape of a round spot changes to an oval on the surfaces that are not facing you. The same is true of spots on this Leopard Frog.
