Sea Turtle

Sea Turtle, originally uploaded by bean.zilla.
I asked my 2 11/12ths year old painting helper this morning what I should paint. He yelled "A turtle named Chair!"

I painted Chair with the kind of watercolor palette you use in grade school on sketchbook paper. The paper was very wrinkly so I had to stop layering colors. I looked at the back of a Zootles magazine with a silhouette of a turtle on it to get the general idea of flipper shape for Chair. It was enjoyable to paint without drawing the turtle in first.

Parts of the blue ocean were painted by my helper.
