Frog on Matboard~No Gesso

I'm out of gesso at the moment but I'm still on my frog 'kick' so I decided to try painting wet into wet directly on matboard. I sketched in the eye and the general shape, then just winged it. There were a few moments when I thought it got away from me but in the end I think it looks like a frog!

Thanks, Vivien.:) It's kind of warty looking. May be a toad instead?

Thanks, Tracey! Somehow I almost missed your comment. Sorry about that:(
