Watercolor Crab III

Watercolor Crab III
16 x 12"
watercolor on canvas

Been doing a little experimenting with watercolors. I use these watercolor canvases to paint oils because they are so smooth, so I thought I would try doing a watercolor on one. I like the effect - a little harder to control, but it is a nice surface to work with.
