Green Sea Turtle is a drawing that I did for my mother as a Christmas present. She likes sea turtles. Since I wasn’t that familiar with sea turtles I had to do some research and gather some reference photos before I started.
Years ago I took a trip to Hawaii and saw some sea turtles swimming in the ocean. I was amazed at how large they are. They are beautiful animals.
The original drawing is done in graphite pencils on 2-ply Bristol vellum.
Each Green Sea Turtle print is hand signed and hand numbered out of a total run of 50. Once they are sold out, no more will be run.
The print comes mounted in a 5″ x 7″ archival mat with backing board. All of my prints are matted to standard frame sizes for ease of framing.
I cut my own mats. The mat colors may vary depending on what I have in stock but I always pick something that compliments the artwork. Generally for Green Sea Turtle I use green and that’s what I would recommend. If you place an order and would like a specific mat color, send me a note and I will try to accommodate you. For Green Sea Turtle I usually use a single mat. The print itself is about 5″ x 3″, which leaves an approximate 1″ border on the sides and bottom.
Prints are protected by a clear plastic archival bag that guards against moisture and minor scratches. I recommend leaving the print inside the bag until it is transferred to a frame.
