Artist's description:

I painted this on Ampersand Gessobord which is a special gesso surface for acrylic painting.

I took a photo of a turtle swimming whilst on holiday in The Bahamas a few years ago and this is my interpretation of the turtle having its usual an afternoon swim.

I wanted the viewer to get the feeling that the turtle was coming up for air with part of it's shell out of the water with ripples around the shell. I also wanted to show the clear water s of the Bahamas with gold sunlight shining through.
