Pond Turtle and Sea Turtle Doodles
Last night I was watching t.v. and decided to doodle with my Prismacolor watercolor pencils. I still struggle with making up drawings out of my head. This pond turtle, I’ll call him “Tucker,” decided to wear a hat on this hot summer day.
I have been concentrating more on writing for my class than doing art. I am currently working on a non-fiction piece that is supposed to be a description of a favorite place of mine from childhood. If any of you know anything about me, you know I don’t have many favorite places from back then, so it was tough to come up with one.
I decided to do a piece called “The Ballpark.” It was my favorite place to go when I lived in Georgia. I played softball for three years before we moved to Kentucky. Close by was the public swimming pool which was also where I loved to go most of the time in the summer. I chose to write about the ballpark, because I was able to come up with more description using the five senses…I think. 😉 I probably won’t share it here since it is an assignment, and I’m not sure about whether we are allowed to put our assignments on a blog. Perhaps I should find out.
Here’s another doodle I did last night experimenting with yellows and greens. You may have to shield your eyes for this one; it’s too bright for me. I could lift some yellow out, but it’s just a doodle, so it’s staying the way it is.
Tomorrow I will post another 5×7 Sea Turtle I did, but I probably won’t be getting cards made from it. I don’t really care much for the color, but I would love to know what you think! I honestly don’t think it would be one that could sell. Until then…
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂

I could not find photo credit for this black and white picture.
This is an interesting article that I stumbled onto yesterday about Ila Fox Loetscher who founded Sea Turtle, Inc. in 1977 after she had been rehabilitating Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles at her home for many years. ISN’T SHE ADORABLE!!!
(I really need to move to the beach somewhere!) 😉 Have a great day, and give someone you love a big hug!
