“Brown” Sea Turtle Watercolor

Hello Friends,

Yesterday I said I would be posting the sea turtle doodle I finished last night.  I had already worked on the background a few days ago and started it at my desk where I can use my watercolors out of the tubes.  However, last night I decided to use my Prismacolor watercolor pencils to finish this one instead.  It is more brown than I’d wanted, and not even the colors I had originally planned for, but the first one I did with this turtle’s pose the other day was such a disaster I could never show it to anyone.  Trust me; it’s very bad!  So here is a sea turtle that is brown, but that would not be classified as its ‘type’.  I think it is a Green Sea Turtle which is fine, because many of their shells do have a lot of brown in them.  They are not called ‘green’ for their shell color but for the color of the fat inside their bodies.

So anyway if you have a new name for this one, write it in the comments.  Thanks.

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

5×7 Sea Turtle #2

Hello Friends,

Here is my new Hawksbill sea turtle in watercolor.  I did this one yesterday.  Since I had it lightly penciled on the paper already, I painted it in a few hours.

I am inside right now during the solar eclipse getting ready to wash some dishes.  We didn’t get special glasses to watch it.  My husband had a doctor’s appointment this morning also, so he may be inside through most of it.  Oh well.  I stood on our very shaded back porch and took a few pictures at different times between 10:05 and 10:40 a.m. PT.  It was definitely darker!

Well, I hope everyone has a wonderful week.  I will probably get back to some writing later today after doing dishes and working out.

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

5×7 Cards Ready to Paint

 

 

Hello Friends!

I just wanted you to know that I am still working on my cards.  Unfortunately, I did not make it to the printer this week with the first one.  I became involved in a huge writing project.

Anyway, I did get three more sea turtles LIGHTLY drawn (sorry if you can’t see them well) onto the watercolor paper and will probably do some painting later today.

I didn’t feel very well for a couple of days this week, but I did get to talk with both of the kids for quite a while which made my week a lot brighter!

I hope everyone has a great weekend and all of you creative people out there are enjoying your creative endeavors, whatever they may be.

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

5×7 Sea Turtle #1 FINISHED!!

 

Hello Friends!

Here is my first 5×7 Sea Turtle watercolor painting with the background!  This is my Green Sea Turtle.  In case you’re wondering why they are called “Green,” it is not because of the colors of their shells which are usually a brown color (mine is covered with moss, etc.) but it is because of the fat inside their bodies!  It is green from all the algae and other plants they eat!  Cool, huh?

I cannot seem to get my phone camera to do the colors justice, though.  The blues and greens in the water are not coming out as much as you can see them in person.  I tried taking the photo in different areas and this one taken outside was the best.  I think when it is scanned by the computer guy at the print shop, it will come out better.  I will dropping it off to them on Monday, August 14th since I will already have to be in town that day for the dentist.  I live over a 30 minute drive away so I go to town as little as possible!

I’m not sure how many to order, but will probably just start with a dozen.  The first time has to include the cost of scanning the painting as well.  So it could be two weeks or so before they are ready most likely.

In the meantime, I will be starting on the second one!  I am also working on my second children’s story for my writing class.  I wrote the first two drafts out by hand, and the second draft is a lot longer.  Now I’m going to type them to see what my word count is!

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

 

5×7 Sea Turtle #1

Hello Friends!

Today, I spent about five hours painting this turtle.  I just need to add a background to it tomorrow, because I am all painted out now!  Sea turtles are docile creatures even though their bills make them look a little sad.  I hope this one doesn’t look too sad!  This is Thomas #2.

I will post it again tomorrow when it is finished.  This will be the first 5×7″ sea turtle card I will be getting scanned for printed cards.  Also, if anyone wants a print of it, tell me what size, I’ll find out how much, and you can contact me through my Facebook art page, also called https://www.facebook.com/PatsysCreativeCorner, to make arrangements for purchasing either prints or cards.  For some reason, the little Facebook tab on my blog’s front page takes you to someone else’s page with my name.  It’s not me!  It got messed up somehow and I haven’t figured out how to remove it yet.  Oh the joys of computers!

I have been trying to set up a way for people to buy directly from Facebook through Paypal, but am not having success with getting my “shop” to show up.  I need to get someone who is savvy in that to help me!

Also, I am working on drawing the mice from Cinderella.  So fun!

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