ART STORY ~

Do you like the playfulness of color and tropical tribal designs? This might be the art for your space! Painting this turtle, I had fun with blending some of Daniel Smith watercolor primary colors straight on the paper to make the secondary colors and the soft blends. Daniel Smith Fine Watercolors are made mostly of stones / rocks and semi-precious stones and so they have different characteristics and flow with the different paint colors.  I love painting with these colors and enjoy getting to know the personalities, characteristics and abilities of the different colors and how they react with each other.

*In the original painting the ocean water that has the Polynesian design in it is painted with Daniel Smith luminescent semi-precious stones. The original painting is unframed and available for sale in the “Original Paintings” section.
