Sentinel came together pretty quickly.  I didn’t spend a lot of time picking the colors; this blue/green batik was lying next to the hot pink and I just really liked the combination.  The only time spent on colors was finding a lighter pink for the frog’s belly. 

I decided not to distract from the combo by adding another color for the tree branch.  Instead, I used quilt stitching to create the branch’s dimension (see detail).  Sentinel_blogDetail


I did keep Sentinel’s eye his natural color, unlike the rest of the composition.  It just seemed unnecessary to mess with it. 

Next up? …with only 2 days left before the Funky Monkey show, I guess the next Frog Portrait may be the last of this batch.   Stay tuned for the closer.  :-)
