More Shimmering Sea Turtles

posted in: Blog | 0

The third in my series of shimmering sea turtles painted in a new way for me. I’m creating some new pieces for my upcoming “featured artist” show at the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery. Working this way with having the entire surface covered in gold certainly affects the oil glazes, giving it a shimmering effect. Finished work is 11 x 14 inches. I’ll be keeping with the local theme and using this technique painting magnolia blossoms next as there is a 200 year old magnolia tree outside my studio window in downtown Charleston!
