To come across a Green Sea turtle in the wild is a wonderful experience.
They inhabit tropical and subtropical coastal waters around the world. They also are one of six species of marine turtle found in the Great Barrier Reef.
Like other sea turtles, they migrate long distances between feeding grounds and the beaches from where they hatched.
This piece was done on Perspex, the Turtle itself sculpted from clay, this is a three dimensional sculpture painting. Inspired by my time around these amazing creatures on our beautiful Great Barrier Reef.
Inspired by the natural world, this Fine art collection is a combination of many materials and Mediums.
The works are predominately 3 dimensional, mostly created using recycled materials ranging from cardboard, electrical wire, newspaper, wool, fabrics, plaster, clay and oil and acrylic paint. Oil paint is Petra’s main painting medium, but she is always experimenting with different mediums to achieve that perfect effect, striving for a strong, secure and tidy finish.
Finished with a coat of Chroma Finish Varnish, which is providing a non-tacky protective coating, that also protects against mold.
The entire painting /sculpture can be dusted using a small soft (make-up like) brush.
