Baby Sea Turtles ~ first trek to the sea

“First Plunge Babies”  measures 40x30x1.5″. This is part of a series of sea turtle paintings illustrating these baby sea turtles as they take their first trek to the tide immediately after hatching. Their amazing sense of finding the sea and bravely plunging into the salty water captured in an impressionistic piece.

“First Plunge Baby Sea Turtles” is a fun beach painting that measures 36x36x1.5″. As a gallery wrap, no frame is needed. After swimming in the ocean a lot this summer, I have been working on capturing the colors and movements of the tide in an impressionistic style. Being a larger painting, I could physically paint in a similar rhythm of the waves with large fluid strokes. Also I wanted to enhance the color of the water which has more greens.
