Hawksbill Sea Turtle

Hawksbill Sea Turtle

Hello Friends.

Today I painted my favorite sea creature, the Hawksbill Sea Turtle.    I began following a page on Facebook called #WorldWatercolorGroup  and today is paint your favorite sea creature day!  Yay!

Hawksbill sea turtles are one of the smallest of the seven types of sea turtles in all of our oceans.  They have a hawk-shaped beak which is a little different than other sea turtles’s beaks.  However, in this painting from this angle the beak is not as visible as in my other painting of Shelley, the Hawksbill Sea Turtle, which is here and many of you have seen before.

“Hello again!” says Shelley.  “It looks like I have a new friend up there!”  😉


Hawksbill sea turtles only get as long as about three feet unlike the largest of sea turtles, the Leatherback, which can grow as long as 10 feet!  You can read more about all the different types at this website.  They are all endangered which most of you are probably already aware of.

I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday!  I know I sure have been.  Painting in watercolors is my very favorite art form of interest.  I like drawing and have painted some in acrylics, but I always gravitate back to watercolors!

I did finally receive my Chinese watercolor painting kit, and wow, learning how to make those types of marks is difficult!  However, I am definitely up for the challenge.  Tomorrow I will post the little bit I’ve done so far.  I experimented with ink only yesterday and attempted to draw a little fish.  You will be able to tell I have a lot to learn about how to move the brush, but it was fun and that is all that matters, right?  Experiment with something new and let me know about it!  I am always interested in what others are doing in art and/or writing!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!  🙂
