Kemps Ridley Sea Turtle, Spirit of the Gulf Challenge, Final

 
Made a few changes and had to use a bit of goauche (opaque watercoor) on the shell of the turtle and on the mid-ground light areas.  Darkened a bit of the area to the left of the turtle, extended the light on the ground beneath the turtle and darkened the right side of the foreground.  The photo of the painting on Blogger looks darker than what it looks like on my imaging programs.  Not sure why the changes.
