I loved the turtle in the invite, so tried some printmaking on my gelliplate with a hand made stencil of the turtle
turned out rather dark but did use the backs of some failed WCs
6x9 each, will trim for something later

then sketched the mossy post with wc, and inktenseblocks rubbed for texture, and colored pencil, didn't turn out as bright as hoped
6x9

then painted this with WC using only a flat 1" brush, a touch of white gouache too
6x9

Fence post looks great as do the cabins. Be interested to see how you re-use the turtles, which are cute as can be.

The turtles are too cute, esp. the scecond one that's a little brighter. The fence post is beautiful. You captured the pinks and purple in there. I was amazed at the number of colors in that simple scene. Love the river scene too, nice textures and colors in the buildings and movement in the water. Very successful experiments Bonnie!

Love your adventures into art. The turtles remind me of fabric, love textures in the other to. Today I noticed when I put the garbage cans up that there was an old hammer next the the ladder outside that has a some nice beautiful blue corrosion on it and thought of you. Will try to remember to get close up of the texture and will post. Will let you know if I remember to do it.
