Turtles Playing in a Pond

pencil drawing of 3 turtles in pond setting
{Finalized turtle sketch}

Happy Friday! Today you are getting another sneak peak at my drawing table. I showed you my initial sketches for this turtle name plate project earlier and now here’s a finalized version.

Since this is a custom name plate painting, I wanted the name to fit into the narrative of the turtle pond scene. I thought an old wooden sign might just do the trick! The sign gives enough importance to the text, but leaves enough room for my 3 little turtles.

The next step is to bring this painting to life with rich bright colors. I know what I’m doing over the weekend. Do you have any plans?
