Tree frog: step 3, details
Photoshop allowed for better color and value judgements. After importing my digital photo, I decided that the moon value was too bright, coming forward, when I wanted it to recede. So, I used cool, dark colors to make it fade into the background. I also added highlights to the moon crest. I didn't want the crest to overpower the frog, as on the previous t-shirt design. Once the colors worked, I used the image from my computer as a guide for my actual painting. I have two hours to finish this up, and I still want to get in at least a 3-mile run. So, back to work.
