Shackleford Island Horse

Shackleford Island Horse
10" x 8"
Oil on canvas

I felt like some bright colors. 
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.

Blue Crab

"Blue Crab"
30" x 23"
Watercolor on Arches
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 :)
