The Explorer - Original Frog ACEO

I began working in pen and ink two years ago. I enjoy the stark contrast I can create when I add color to the subject of the drawing but leave the rest in the black lines of pen.

Frogs are one of my more favorite subjects for this medium. This little guy made me think of an explorer scaling a mountain side, only here it's a giant leaf.

Gorgeous. I work in pen and ink too and find that color is so powerful on a field of black and white. Wonderful work.
