Here's Looking at You - A Work in Progress

Today I spent the afternoon over at Heather's house and we worked on our turtle paintings for "The Art of the Turtle". Artists were given an 8" x 10" canvas to create a painting featuring a turtle.

All paintings will be auctioned to raise money for the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre.

My first piece didn't come out quite the way I wanted, although it will become landscape painting and will post it at a later date.

So I had to start over on a new canvas and try a different way to create the turtle with a different background which seemed to work better at placing the turtle in a pond.

This is my painting about half way finished. It is still very rough, but should work out better than my original painting.
