Sea turtle

Sea turtle

Marina at the art centre (hangarart.org) suggested turtles as they are always a great subject to paint. I did this one using masking fluid to draw the intricate design first before painting the shell. I love these amazing and beautiful creatures and here are a few facts about them :

“Sea turtles are one of the Earth’s most ancient creatures. The seven species that can be found today have been around for 110  million years, since the time of the dinosaurs. The sea turtle’s shell, or “carapace” is streamlined for swimming through the water. Unlike other turtles, sea turtles cannot retract their legs and head into their shells. Their color varies between yellow, greenish and black depending on the species.”
