Hawksbill Reef Day 3

Turtle-Day-3

Progress is being made one brush stroke at a time. Adding some color, highlights, and depth to the new sea turtle painting.
I can already envision the sponges, soft coral, and small invertebrates I will use to frame this beautiful creature!

Interesting to note some of the color combinations I used. Hawksbill sea turtles have a great deal of an orange-yellow tint to their underbelly and flippers. Capturing the right hue and saturation is proving to be a challenge. After several attempts at finding the right mix and combining the paint on the canvas I feel it is satisfactory for now.
