Galápagos tortoise

A virtual trip to the Galapágos

So lucky to travel again! Even if only virtually. *sigh*

This time to the Galapágos with Art Safari’s Mary-Anne.  We worked from hundreds of photos from their previous trips, of sea lions, iguanas, birds and people. I started off with tonal studies learned from my virtual Japan session. Galápagos tortoise

Then looked for the interesting colors of the land iguanas – Galápagos land iguanas

Next lots of curves made by the sea lions.  These were lots of fun to do, and add color to. Galápagos sea lions   Galápagos sea lions 2  Yes, SO much fun! Galápagos sea lions   Galápagos sea lions   Galápagos sea lions   Looking at the lines of the variety of bird species –

Finally, I tried a watercolor only tortoise – no pencil lines first. Not my usual style, but that’s the fun of stretching  your abilities! Galápagos tortoise  Ending with something of a combination of ink lines and loose watercolor. Might be my favorite! Galápagos tortoise

I hope we all can travel this year, even if only virtually! 😘
