As you have noticed I haven't been oil painting much and needed a change. I started painting this a week ago and had to stop because something came up and thought I needed to make lots of changes, but the more I looked at it, the more I saw it needed only a few tiny tweaks and it was perfect!
I really love the way this turned out - the color looks so much like that day.
I've been really enjoying the challenge of watercolors and (obviously) painting crabs. I tried a shrimp and found out (1) you CAN overwork watercolors and the result is muddy and gross and (2) if you mess up a watercolor, you can use the other side :)
