‘The Frog King’ is one of my more unusual and unique pieces of art, as it is the first that involves an experimentation of using mixed media.
The jewels of the crown are made from modelling paste and Pebeo paints, giving them some depth like real precious stones. Gold leave has been spotted around the crown. The foliage in the foreground has been built up with modelling paste and thick oil paint. It is tricky to photograph, as the Pebeo paints and gold leaf appear to shift and change in different lights, which is why I am willing to meet with you in person with the painting before you make any commitment. The texture and and effects of the Pebeo and gold leaf come to life when viewing this painting in person, and looks magical on a blank wall.
The canvas measures 11×14 inches, and with the gold frame (which sets it off brilliantly) it measures just over 14×17 inches.
The artwork is inspired by the Brothers Grimm story of ‘The Frog King’, also known as ‘Iron Heinrich’ or more commonly ‘The Frog Prince’. In my interpretation, my painting depicts the moment after the witch has turned the King into a frog, imagining that his crown has fallen to the ground in front of the well (sometimes a spring) whilst in the process of transforming into a small frog. You can find out more about the story and the process of this painting on my YouTube channel.
