If you go out in the woods today
You’d better not go alone
It’s lovely out in the woods today
But safer to stay at home

Turquoise Tree Frog in Rose

rosefrog-b-2

This was a photograph of a green tree frog in a rose in my front yard that I converted to B&W.   I then colored it with only three colors using the new glazing brushes in Corel Painter 2017.   Turquoise had really been on my mind this morning, hence the choice of color.  The overall image was a little flat so I added the luminosity and saturation of the original photograph to complete the transformation.
