"Honu" Hawaiian green sea turtle 24"x18" watercolor on 300lb Arches paper
I have only seen a few green turtles in person but they have left an big impact on me. I was blessed to be able to photograph this turtle sunning on a Big Island beach in Hawaii. I used these photos to compose this painting. Doing some further research I found the Hawaiian sea turtle is called honu by the native Hawaiians. Hope you enjoy this painting. I think this is one of my favorites.
