I have been so excited about this week's PPF since last Friday! I actually painted this last Friday afternoon and it has taken every bit of will power I have not to post it before today. lol. I sketched the sea turtle out a few weeks ago but was too afraid to try painting it right away because I didn't want to mess it up. I love him! I used liquid frisket to mask off the light areas on his body after putting down a wash of the blue/green color then layered on some browns. After I removed the frisket I went around the brown edges again and darkened the blue/green slightly. I had so much fun doing this one I couldn't decide if I should post him for Sunday Sketches last week or my moon, which if you missed that post, the image is below and the post is here.
To see more wonderful PPF submissions or to join in on the fun hop on over to the Paint Party Friday blog.
PS...Looked at a very cute apartment today, has all hardwood floors, new windows, a basement with storage space and a washer and dryer! Little smaller than the apt we're in right now but it does have a large fenced back yard and central air. Still going to look at another unit on Sunday. I think we're getting closer.
