Floating Sea Turtle

Floatier Sea Turtle


Hello friends.  This is the sea turtle I drew in pen and ink a really long time ago and forgot about.  It was drawn in pen on tracing paper just waiting for me to bring it to life and give it a home.  So now I have also painted it in watercolors,, too.  Doing the water with the sky above the water is really challenging.

I really should become an ocean photographer and go get my own photos.  I think I saw this one in a book, but I cannot find which book now.  That’s the problem with having so many sea creature books!  Wait a minute!  I can NEVER have too many books (especially of sea creatures!)

The other day I watched an awesome short film made by Questar, Inc.  It is a PBS film I found on Netflix called “Voyage of the Lonely Turtle.”  Wow was it ever so incredibly well-done and gorgeous!  There were a few sad parts, but basically it is about a female Loggerhead’s very long journey across the ocean to find the perfect beach for laying her eggs.  I really loved it.  What was interesting about it, even though it was sad, was it showed many of the perils that sea turtles face such as getting caught in a net (she was rescued and let go by a kindly fisherman), trying to find somewhere safe to sleep (one night she was circled by sharks), getting attacked, and worst of all it showed a partial skeleton of a sea turtle lying at the bottom of the ocean.  I took screen shots of many things so I can compose a few paintings, because I not only want to display their beauty, but also remind people of how dangerous the ocean can be for them.

So there will be more to come and also more of other types of sea creatures.  Can you tell how much I LOVE the ocean?

Until next time…..have a wonderful 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. Thanks for visiting! :)

  1. I always love to see your sea turtles, Patsy. The PBS special sounds like a tearjerker.
