Little Turtle By the Sea


Another baby turtle for a special little girl in Germany. Her mother gave me some of her favorites to work from: the colors pink and purple, and the sea-side with sunshine and seashells.

Just like the baby turtle with cheetah print that I painted for Miss B in California, this turtle was custom designed.  It makes me so happy to paint these little turtles.  I feel Knox close to me and I get so much joy from being able to give something to the amazing children we’ve met from all over the world.

The base is a 6″ x 6″ wrapped canvas.  The design was painted in acrylic with details added using a ZIG pen ( .o3), and then the piece was coated 3 times with gloss varnish.










Thanks so much for stopping by.

I painted a scene from my trip to Liverpool in June. I’ll be posting the process photos and the finished result next.

See all of my sketches, photos, and works in progress on my FB page.

Have a great weekend.  ~Scarlett

  1. Hi Scarlett – the little Turtle is just lovely … and I bet the little girl will love looking at the colours and reaching out to feel your turtle …

    I can feel the light of the sun on the painting, while the shells, and the sea have an amazing quality about them … the turtle with a flower in her hair watching the little flutterbyes dart about … gorgeous …

    Looking forward to your Liverpool scene .. cheers and hugs – Hilary

  2. You need to see my daughters face by looking at your painting. You gave her more than a picture from a turtle at the sea. You gave her some sweet dreams and I have to tell her stories about this turtle girl. Thank you Scarlett. From the bottom of my heart. I love you!
