WDE: June 21st, Sally Lightfoot Party Crab

Hi Everyone,
Sigh... This painting has confirmed my ability to paint in watercolor is not my best skill. For my next painting I will be switching back to oil.

Now about this "party" crab. I used WC on a 9"x12" WC paper. I spent 3 hours on this piece. The last hour I was trying to rework everything, which then muddied up my back ground. No turning the crab into a pillow this time.

Party Crab

Re: WDE: June 21st, Sally Lightfoot Party Crab

This has great colour and is vibrant - almost pointillism effect. Well done. Don't be too hard on yourself - even the masters reckon if they get one in four they are lucky. Watercolour is always a challenge - that is why we keep trying

This crab is certainly the life of the party. He found an environment to camouflage himself inside

Thaesha! I love the colors and the beautiful crab in the middle. They say that watercolor is the hardes medium to use and I agree. In any case, you did marvelously!
