Feeling Crabby

Sally Lightfoot Crab

I started a watercolor of one of these crabs.  (I don't know
why it uploaded sideways?!)  Anyway, these are the
initial washes...just a light, thin, glaze of color on the white paper.

Starting to add some of the details and the darks, and building up
the layers.  This is where the illusion of shadows is added (value), and he
starts to take shape.  Will keep working on him.
