Australian Flatback Sea Turtle
This is my final preliminary sketch for my next painting. It is on 18×24″ paper, but the painting will be 20×26. I designed the scales on him which means it may not be exactly like a real one would look. I also didn’t take time to shade in the shell. Next I need to get it transferred to my watercolor paper and begin my next painting in my sea turtle series.
Have a great day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂

Thank you, Jill. I am beginning to think I’m going to have to make drawing them part of my life’s work. I saw an article in “Drawing” magazine about an artist named Jimmy Wright who has been drawing and painting sunflowers in many different ways for many years. Pretty interesting.
Very nice, Patsy! I love these turtles! 🙂
