“Turtles Together” Turtle Coloring Page for Adults

This month’s coloring page theme is “turtles.” Truth be told, I have been very busy and was tempted to give the art pen to my pet turtle and let him have at it. You would have enjoyed abstract turtle-designed coloring pages, right? Inspired by Mother’s Day and having a little time to myself, I decided instead to create this turtle coloring page for adults.

The design is meant to be a mama turtle and her baby turtle, however, it also works as a daddy and baby turtle for Father’s Day, a grandparent and grandchild turtle, or just turtle friends. The main objective is to show the close bond of the turtles together.

Speaking of Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Grandparent’s Day…my coloring book “Let’s Color Together” makes a great gift!

Look closely at the detailed designs on the turtles’ shells. These are fun to leave as is or color in a rainbow of colors. I chose to keep with a monochromatic green color scheme while mixing up colors on the detailed areas.

My husband recommended I add a butterfly and a little fish to the page.

You already know I have a pet turtle (Snurtle), but our pet turtle also has a fish friend that lives with him. This goldfish was purchased as a feeder fish, because the pet store insisted the turtle would eat it and it would make him happy. The idea made me a little squeamish, but I love my turtle.

Well, I guess it made him squeamish too, because he never ate him. Instead, the two became good friends. Comic (the fish, named by E), and now the fish is just about the same size as Snurtle. They even fight over certain foods when it’s time to eat–chicken, raspberries, beans…who would have thought that little goldfish would befriend a turtle and gain his appetite. They are a hoot to watch!

To color this page, I used:

I started coloring this page using Copic markers. These lay a nice smooth, bold color down and prime the paper for the pencils. I then layered pencil and more marker, plus a little white chalk marker to brighten white areas. The pencil is perfect for adding texture to the ground, shading on the turtle, and flow to the water.
