Painted turtles are back!

Tried out my new Leuchtturm 1917 A5 with this detailed drawing of a painted turtle. I love how the paper handles graphite and how bright white it is! Our pond has 14 painted turtles, which can live up to 40 years and survive winter by absorbing oxygen through their skin. #sciart
