"Honu" Hawaiian green sea turtle, 24"x18" watercolor on 300lb Arches paper
I have only seen a few green turtles in my life but they made a big impact on me. I was fortunate to photograph this green sea turtle basking on a beach on the Big Island in Hawaii. I used my photo references to compose this painting. Doing some more research I found that the Hawaiians call their green sea turtles honu. Hope you enjoy this painting.
