Marine Life - How to Paint Turtles? 

Learn to Paint Sea Turtles, Tropical fish, Bubbles and More! 


               Create two sea turtle paintings in this class!!


Painting underwater marine life has always been a popular topic with artists. You are reading this, perhaps because they attract you too! All marine life, sea turtles, reef fish and beautiful corals offer artists a wide variety of colors and textures to paint. Years ago I took up scuba diving as a way to see for myself the natural beauty of these creatures, I was not disappointed and I was hooked!  

You are probably looking to learn how to paint these creatures in their natural habitats and to learn the secrets of making them come alive on your canvas. When it comes to portraying underwater light and reflections, there needs to be an understanding of how water impacts the colors of what we see. This class will fill in all the blanks and lots more.
