A good friend asked me to do a commission for her. In their little family, it is her, her sister, and their mom. The three of them. Her mother loves sea turtles and she wanted a commissioned piece of three sea turtles: A mother, and two smaller ones, representing their little family. So…onward to find the perfect sea turtles to draw from. I find it easier to draw from print, instead of life, which a. worked out well because of a severe lack of sea turtles, and b. I just think it’s easier…maybe because they are already 2D?
I found the perfect photo in Nation Geographic…which I use a lot for drawing…that and I may be the only person under 60 who subscribes to Birds and Blooms magazine. 😉 Anyway…I took the photo of one sea turtle, and made it three.
If you look closely, each little sea turtle has a heart on their neck. Momma has three hearts <3
