The August project for Watercolor Workshop where everyone paints from the same photo is this sea turtle. It was really fun painting it - I did a poured background with Golden fluid acrylics and salt and then finished the painting with watercolors. A cyber-artist friend, Ruth Bodycott, suggested bringing the water in front of the turtle, so I lifted out paint with Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and also added some of the turquoise fluid acrylic in front of the turtle and then it really did look like the turtle was in the water. Thanks for the suggestion, Ruth! Now I like it!
