sea turtles

Gwenn Seemel
Turtles two
2016
acrylic on panel
5 x 7 inches

I started this painting well before I started this sculpture, but I still finished the three-dimensional turtle before the two-dimensional ones. Partly this has to do with the way I sculpt, but mostly it’s that I did a lot of thinking about how turtles look for the painting and all that helped when I sat down to make a turtle in clay.
