|art with a side of Bacon, Francis Bacon that is...|
Per request, someone needed a new turtle pic so here is the progress so far. I used a bright mango-orange 3x5" card with a smooth finish as my base.
After making a few modifications to my design with the orange, I moved onto the emerald green to start laying in and finalizing the shape of my turtle. I like to start with the lighter shades of wax sticks and then build on my design with progressively darker sticks. This way if I made a mistake with the first try I can keep layering colors until the shape is just what I had in mind.
