Stony creek frog (14 x 9.5 inches)
- I took the reference photo for this painting of a stony-creek frog (Litoria wilcoxii) on a recent camping trip to D'Aguilar National Park just north-west of Brisbane. The adult male frogs in bright yellow-green breeding colours were abundant all along Neurum creek, sitting out in the open along the gently-sloping rocky/sandy shore. I also recently purchased some Ay-Up narrow-beam head spotlights which make spotlighting (and photographing) nocturnal wildlife much easier! I liked the setting that this little frog was in, and also the general composition of the subject.
