The Terrific Toad Took a Turn in the Tub

I enjoyed doing this latest painting in my alphabet series. Probably largely because I had several new Daniel Smith watercolor paints to select from. I love getting new colors on my palette!

The background is a layer of my new Cascade Green over a flat wash of Cobalt Teal Blue. The frog is a mix of Olive Green and my new Mummy Bauxite. The gray of the tub is actually three colors - Moonglow (new), Prussian Green & Cadmium Red. And the T is Rose of Ultramarine (new) mixed with Cobalt Blue. So fun!

I've had two requests for R recently, so I'd better get on that letter!
