Gouache painting of Mock-Turtle from Alice in Wonderland sitting at the ocean floor with tea cups

30 Paintings in 30 Days: Day 6 – Noone Came to Tea at the Bottom of the Sea

Day 6 of the painting challenge! Today’s painting was a little more involved. I sized up to a 5″ x 7″ – I find it’s a much more comfortable size to work at as everything isn’t tiny, tiny so it’s easier to make nice details, which I love! Despite of that I’ll continue with miniature paintings for the majority of the month as the larger size also means it’s much more time consuming.

This painting depicts Mock-Turtle, a well known character from Alice in Wonderland who is described as a mix between a cow and a turtle. The painting comes ready to hang in a beautiful 10,5″ x 8,5″ frame. It is painted in gouache on canvas paper and measures 5″ x 7″.

The painting is available for purchase. Just click the button below.
