A frog struggling with a shark pierced with arrows


40cm x 37cm (approx 15.5″ x 14.5″)

Acrylic, gouache, watercolour and pastel on Arches 300gsm paper

One of my favourite pieces from 2019 – a frog creature wearing a beak wrestles with a shark despite all the arrows. I used a deep saturated turquoise with a bright red and yellow contrasting underpainting. Lots of texture and pastel streaks in the background.
