Small changes, big impact

 
It's interesting how just a few changes can have a major impact on a painting.  After painting the first turtle, which was portrait style piece, by that I mean just the turtle, I decided I wanted to put the turtle in a landscape, after all I love to paint landscapes.  So I had the idea that the turtle would be searching for the right beach to lay eggs, which happens at night, I think.  But now, the painting looks more like an illustration (not that there's anything wrong with that) for a children's book than a painting. Maybe just too............. cute.  But not sure how to change it or if I want to.   Here's the first turtle pic for comparison.

This is not as good a photo as the one above,  it is washed out and not as sharp for some reason.
