Sea Turtle Obsession

"If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water...Its substance reaches everywhere, it touches the past and prepares the future; it moves under the poles and wanders thinly in the heights of the air."

-Loren Eiseley

This is an excerpt from a journal I keep where I explore ideas, thoughts and feelings. I have been obsessed with sea turtles, the ocean and environment lately. I am venturing from my pastels looking for something between my usual pastels and my scientific illustrations. This page was created with a variety of techniques and watercolor. I may explore this further for a painting. It helps to explore other media and techniques to "escape the box".
