Baby Turtle

Baby Turtle

I was sorting through my old photos and found this one that I took a little over 2 years ago. I was just walking along through a forest one day when I noticed this baby turtle hiding behind the grass.

It’s trying to slowly sneak away. 🙂

Painting a Day 5: Green Turtle

Oil on linen, 5″x7″

I wanted to go for a test drive with cobalt green deep (PG50), cobalt green light (also PG50), and cobalt turquoise (PB36), all from Blue Ridge, plus some titanium white from Charvin.

The colors in this photo are probably off since I waited too late in the day before starting so by the time I finished the light for the photo wasn’t good. It’s not this bluish in real life and the greens at the bottom should be a little warmer. Maybe I’ll replace this with a better photo tomorrow.
