Turtles are swimming to the surface for air and light. The artist said the surface is greenish - blue/yellow tinted due to the presence of algae. The water body is not well defined as it changes from a pond to a river and then to an ocean based on the artist's mood. Sahana says it is mostly morning due to the color of light. (She means it is not a dawn or twilight).

This painting by Child artist Sahana Subramanyam (5 years) received a Silver medal Khula Aasmaan art competition for children for October to December 2020.
