Fine art illustration of a Spotted Turtle (Clemmys guttata.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Spotted Turtle was completed on 6.11.09. I had been meaning to draw one of these handsome reptiles for some time. I visited the Oakland Zoo one morning and made some photos studies of their resident Spotted Turtles that live in the new reptile and amphibian house. Luckily they were both basking out on logs which gave me a good opportunity to study them. NOTE: Original drawing replaced in 2018
