Aldabra Giant Tortoise Drawing
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! 🙂
