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! 🙂

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. 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.


  2. Very nice, Patsy! I love these turtles! 🙂
