Have just had a lot of fun creating this portrait of a turtle in acrylic paint. I used modelling compound and metallic paint on the seaweed.

  1. Sally - this is a gorgeous turtle - you have a real affinity with animals and your palette really suits them each and every one!! So well done - cheers and I already follow so am very please to say this!!!

  2. Thank you Wyn! I love using colour as you obviously do as well. I love your "A question of where we come from" which you did for a NY comp last year. The use of oil glazes and artists inks looks stunning. I may have to do some experimenting.
