This is so easy and turns out so lovely. It is a guided drawing using white oil pastels and then painted with tempera paints. The last step uses a metallic paint pen.
Step One: Draw a large oval that almost fills your paper.
Step Two: Draw another circle inside the big circle.
Step Three: Draw straight lines between the two circles.
Step Four: Draw a straight line down the middle of the inner oval.
Step Five: Draw four triangles but this time make the line curve like the shell.
Step Six: Draw a half oval for the head of the turtle. Add two eyes.
Step Seven: Add four legs using curved lines.
Step Eight: Paint in the different sections of the turtle. Do not paint the background.
Draw a tail with a little triangle!
Step Nine: Add gold and silver dots!
I loved this so much! Thank you for the step by step directions. I printed the whole thing to put into my files! I can’t wait to do this! 🙂

So Cool! I agree with Fern, can’t wait to do this, with my limited innate art skills this step-by-step is key!
