Over the week-end I have painted a bunch of watercolors, mostly in vibrant colors to prove a point in my upcoming Skillshare class, where I will be explaining how to pick and choose colors in your artworks.
Since I started sculpting sea turtles last week, in the intend to question plastic pollution, I naturally ended up painting the same theme.
I started with the following quick watercolors, a galaxy mushroom, a sea turtle in a bright pink ocean and a rainbow bottle. You can also find these in my shop.
These paintings warmed me up, so I dived into the next one, which had been on my mind for a few days. A sea turtle head with a plastic bottle in it’s eye.
Plastic pollution is getting worse by the minute, and it’s pretty easy to do our parts to reduce our own waste and to dispose it properly.
If you buy some of these watercolors, I will also donate 10% to pangeaseed, an organization that fights for our ocean, which I have been following for a while.
And since we are on the underwater theme, I also finished three new cluster coral necklaces to go with the recent jewelry I have made, you can find these here.
Last note on plastic pollution!
To fight it off, you can simply reduce the amount of single plastic use:
– Refuse plastic bags at the store and bring your own fabric bags (even for clothes!)
– Refuse straws at the bar when taking a drink
– Cook from scratch, especially cookies!
– Drink tap water if it’s safe or buy larger plastic bottles to reduce the amount of plastic
– Avoid take-out, rather eat at the restaurant! Or bring your own containers to fill in.
– bamboo toothbrushes
– wooden Q-tips or no Q-tips at all, just wipe your ears clean with your towel!
– pick up trash when you see it in nature
Feel free to add more tips to reduce plastic waste in the comment section and I’ll add them to the list!
