Acrylic on canvas. Painting continues on the sides. High Gloss finish.
The turtle surfaces for a breath in the rough waves. The dark blue sea colours perfectly complement his shell colours and I love the pop of red on his head. It has a roughness to the surface so light shines off it in different ways, which I think adds to the painting. This painting won 3rd place in the Marine section in the Brisbane Royal Exhibition Fine Art Show 2019.
