Turtles at Tybee, Pyrography on Red Cedar. This measures 11” x 17”. I have been to Tybee Island Lighthouse several times. Tybee is very protective of Baby Sea Turtles. It seemed only fitting that I add them to this picture. I had a hard time with them, I burned them too dark, then tried to compensate with paint :) Then I didn’t like the heavy paint look. I played with this one a long time before finally giving in to it.

I love it!

Really crisp and beautiful….............

Nice composition, not to busy, well balanced and so interesting to look at. Love turtles and the beach.

Those detailed turtles really set the background back. Great perspective.

Another beauty….......................

Wow… That’s just amazing. I had no idea you could do that with a burner… Thanks for sharing!

Awesome art work great job. Are you refering to tybee island outside Savanaha Ga ? I been there a long time ago when i was in the service station at Ft Stewart 30 miles from Savanaha. Tybee is a nice Place.

This looks soooo nice….I love it. You wouldn’t know you had any trouble with the paint by the end result :)

Cool. I think your struggles paid off, the unintended “layering” adds a complexity without cluttering it. The texture is really cool, and the turtles really pop. Keep posting!
