Sea Turtle Art Pieces, Part 1

I’ve started two 6″ x 9″ color pencil artworks on gray pastel paper of sea turtles. They will be completed with framing and will be sold as a pair once finished.

Here are the starting shots of the two.

Started by outlining the lightest parts of the turtles with a cream color.

Below are a few steps through the process of laying down colors one at a time, and then skipping ahead to the finished product.

I never realized just how much color these big turtles have on their skin. Not to mention the markings on the shells.

Part 2 coming soon. 🙂
