One Frog

Una Rana - mixed medium - approx. 18" x 12"

I have done a lot of work for educational clients over the years and it can be a challenge to create an interesting illustration that still allows for the type and titles, etc. This one was for a Spanish language reading textbook, a poem about t lazy frog that just lays around imagining animals that it would rather be and picking their shapes out of the clouds. The poem went in the right hand area of the pond and the title in the clouds on the upper left. Nighttime lighting can also pose problems but I think this one gives a nocturnal feel without being colorless.
