11-08-2005, 08:38 PM
Hi All it has been a long time since I posted over here in this forum. I have been working a little larger then the foum allows. 5 x 5 and 4 x 5 but I decided to do a ACEO on a WDE (weekend drawing event) from this weekend. So this is 2.5 x 3.5 of a tortoise, acrylic on masonite (hardboard). Hope you all enjoy.

Oh Sam, your Tortoise has stolen my heart. I had a pet turtle for 17 years until just recently, when he died. You have got his features just perfect, and the surrounds are gorgeous too and I like the feeling of cloudiness in the surroundings, and the Tortoise head so clear. Lovely work. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

There's a lot of personality in that turtleface!!! :clap: Like your son's drawing too! I used to have turtles as pets when I was a kid, so can appreciate the subject! :clap:

Well here is the finish.
The tortoise has won the race.
I had a problem with the clear coat. I have used this spray for a long time and have never had any problems something caused it to pull up paint and I am very frustrated by it. My family says I am seeing things but I know what it looked like before and now he is more speckled because of paint being pulled up very frustrating to me. Well too much work to fix.
Also here it is at actual size
Thanks for all the kind comments and support along the way.
