Tropical Storm Ernesto is making its way into South and North Carolina and is due to pass through my city in a few hours.

After a brutally hot week, dry and dustry, we are getting much needed rain ... and the winds are rising. I wanted to sketch something rain related for today's sketch.

This tree frog (from a photo reference) met my needs perfectly. It's the first frog I've ever drawn!! Isn't he cute!

He's a cutie, alright. Nicely done! Also, like your pears. You got the color perfect!
Hope you don't get hit with Ernesto as a hurricane! It bypassed us here in Florida.

Gosh, Lin, between this little guy and the pears, you've done a couple of great paintings here. Good luck with Ernesto.

Very cute--and you did a great job getting the shape of his head and showing the dimensions of it. It looks very 3-D.

He's gorgeous!! Super job, I love the pears too! Hope that storm keeps its distance from you, sounds nasty.

He is adoreable, Linny! I love the sketchy look of him. You have done some excellent drawings of late! Hope you enjoy your "much needed rain", and no damage.
