Sea Turtle watercolor

Here he is! I am not sure what happened with my paper, but when I was adding the water after I painted the turtle, perhaps I used too much. I have to rewet it on the back and re-stretch it I think, because my paper wrinkled some which I’ve never seen happen before. A little distressing.

Plus, I think I want to add some other sea life around the bottom. He looks a little lonely. 🙂

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. I like the turtle by himself too. I would be tempted to add other things, so I understand why you are thinking of it, but I think it’s rather dramatic as it is.


  2. No I’d leave as is. Turtles are solitary creatures and are often near the surface, which is my interpretation of your painting.


  3. Actually, I wouldn’t try stretching it Patsy, I’s leave as is because your painting now has a 3D effect as opposed to 2D. and where in the guidebook does it say that all watercolours have to be pristine works of art. Some are not. Often they are also textural. Good attempt.


  4. Very nice! Keep up the good work!


  5. Looks great, Patsy! Yes, I think some other sea life would be perfect.
