Squamous Turtle, watercolor by Amy Crook

Squamous Turtle by Amy Crook

I made this little guy in a very similar manner to the Opera Squid, except I mixed rich quinacridone gold with the grey-green zoisite genuine for his palette. He gets his name from one of Lovecraft’s favorite adjectives, which means scaly, and from the texture created when the granular zoisite settles out of the mix, leaving the quinacridone to stain the paper gold.

Squamous Turtle, 7″x5″ watercolor on paper, nfs (sold).
