Aldabra Giant Tortoise Drawing

Hello Friends,

Here is an Aldabra Giant Tortoise I drew in graphite pencil.  I drew it from a photograph taken by Peter Weimann in the children’s picture book called “Turtles” by Trudi Strain Trueit. It took a few days working on it here and there between trying to get rid of my sore throat, which is gone now (thanks Anneli and Jill for the saline advice.  I think it helped.  Plus some cold medicine and extra Vitamin C.)

This tortoise is one of the largest in the world.  It can live up to 150 years in the wild and longer in captivity.  You can read more about them here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aldabra_giant_tortoise  I just don’t have the energy to write much more about them right now.

I tried to paint my Australian Flatback sea turtle in watercolors the other day, but the colors came out horrible!!  So I will have to try again.  I think when I don’t feel very well, I can’t concentrate on what I really want to do.

I turned in my third writing assignment to my online class.  I haven’t heard back from my instructor yet, but I just turned it in Friday night…after hours.

Things have been slow moving around home in the last few days but always good.  My husband is away until Wednesday, but my daughter is here, which I am very glad about!

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

About whitefeatherfloating

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: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
