I went back to the Reference Image Library for something to paint today. I'd seen this sea turtle on the way to finding a bright colored fish and really liked it, also liked the recession of the scene and lost horizon. This was another exercise in blending and combining colors from the markers to get greenish turquoise water shading to green, one that worked well. I played with color on the weeds too to get them fading off into the distance.
