Finished this little fellow yesterday, I love turtles so this one is all mine. Ever since I visited Heron Island off Gladstone a few years back I've been amazed by these wonderful creatures. Although, the Turtles visiting Heron Island are mainly Loggerhead, this fellow is a Green Turtle.
Once again I used Atelier Interactive Acrylics, but this time I used a glaze too, a mix of paint and thinning medium to give the effect of the coral being under the sea.
The canvas measures 1200x900, so its probably one of the biggest paintings I've ever attempted.
I also got to use some of my fave colours too, gorgeous mixes of blues and greens for the sea.
Anyway he's now hanging in the hallway off the back deck against a golden sand painted wall and he looks devine.
