Sea Turtle 5 by Amy Crook

Sea Turtle 5, 6″x4″ watercolor, Primatek watercolor, and interference watercolor on Arches cover buff paper

This grumpy sea turtle is giving you the side-eye as he glides through the sunlit water. He’s no more pleased about how 2016 is going than the rest of us.

The ocean is a rich blue streaked with secret shafts of sunlight that only show up at certain angles. The turtle in contrast is all of soft, natural pigments, muted and almost ghostly as he glides through his world of water and light.

This tiny painting would be perfect on a desk or in a cubicle, giving people the side eye for interrupting your work.

The sunlight shines on the subtle interference blue paint, above, showing off the artwork’s hidden highlights. Below, this tiny painting is tucked away in a small frame, perfect for a niche, book nook, or small bit of empty wall.
