This Painting's Story ~ When I painted this turtle I was playing with blending primary colors straight on the paper. Daniel Smith Fine Watercolors are made mostly of stones / rocks and semi-precious stones and so have different characteristics to paint with. For example most yellows tends to "bossy" and push the other colors away when dropped in the water. I LOVE painting with these colors and more I do the better I get to know the personalities of the different colors. :) The Ocean water that has the Polynesian design in it is painted with D.S. luminescent semiprecious stones! The water seems to glow in some lights! Because these paints are made from stones they will never fade or look old, they will keep their beautiful colorful, and shimmery properties!

I am convo friendly , please contact me through Etsy conversation if you have any questions.
