Lesson No.16 - Painting the Frog's Underbelly

We'll place our darks in first using Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow Deep with a dot of Ultramarine Blue for a dark orange shadow under the frog's head.  As you come out into the light we'll add some more Ultramarine and white to our mix for a lighter, greyer tone.
Paint in the folds of his skin with a middle grey colour and darken the creases as they go into the shadow area.  Using just your white, add this to the highlighted area in the centre of the creases to create the bulging effect.
