My latest work; Sennelier Softs, Carand'Ache and Conté de Paris pencils on Pastel Card, about 50x60.

Still doubting on adding something to the background.

C&C welcome

catweazle, welcome to WetCanvas! Your turtle is most excellent!

Lovely turtle. I like the contrast between the orange of the shell and the water beyond. I personally would leave the background, it has a nice deep ocean look to it :)

How beautiful and bright. I love the contrast between the blue sea and the colours of the turtle. I wouldn't add anything to the background.

A warm welcome to the Animal & Wildllife Forum!:wave:

This is a lovely Turtle portrait! I'm not sure if it needs anything added to the background - I like the blue background against the brown turtle.
Looking forward to seeing more of your work here in this Forum.

thank you for the comments. I've decided to leave it as it is and add nothing to the background.
