Our Second Lesson is How to Keep That Background Soft!
For the background, we are using Cobalt, Lemon, Ultramarine Blue and white. On our palette we mixed up various hues and tones and splodged them onto the canvas. We made it darker down the bottom then filled in the gaps with a light green. As you feather the colours off into each other, you can make leaf shapes. Whatever colour or style you choose for your background, the important thing to remember is to keep it soft and out-of-focus. The frog will be our star and it will be sharp with lots of contrast.
