Here we go – for those who want to know how to paint a crab in watercolour –
I drew the outline of the crab then painted his entire surface with clean water. This gets the paper ready to accept splashy and watery colour to good effect.
Then I banged in some teal blue and let it run – I tip the paper this way and that and let the medium do it.
As it starts to dry a I then went back in to darken shadow areas and start to build form. Finally – when totally dry I add the detail work and spatter – viola. Only problem is I forgot one leg!!!!
Here we have a crab with the correct amount of legs created into a cute pillow –
