Today I started working on an idea I came up with for a tattoo involving one of my favorite animals: the Hawaiian green sea turtle. I don't know if I will ever get a tattoo, but I like the idea of a photo realistic one. I also don't have a clue how to design a tattoo. My husband is not too keen on the idea that I came up with in today's drawing - he likes another idea I came up with from art history: an image from a painting by Paul Klee (I will work on that one next - maybe not tomorrow, but next). Anyway, this idea is sort-of designed to go on my right shoulder. The colors are all funky (not as realistic as I would want, but I have limited colors available in my colored-pencil collection and I haven't used them since.. I can't remember when). I'm kind of embarrassed just putting this out there in a sort of unfinished state, but that's what this exercise was all about. So here it is.
