Hell's Bells! She's at it again

I've started painting crabs in watercolor now. This takes some adjustment from the fluid acrylics. Here's my first pass at an entirely "nother different fiddler crab in watercolor. It needs to be done over. Better. But I plan to spend the next week working on crabs in this medium. The treat will be doing one of them in greytone for the back of the book, which is a black and white piece. But on and on I go.

ps. the best thing is that Emily and I agree that the first one is the best so I'm not anxious. Just lovin' it. And if you haven't had your fill of this nonsense, you can see it all on my art website blog. http://www.jeannelafferty.com/dataviewer.asp?keyvalue=5572&page=Blog

I like this latest crab a lot(even though I agree that the first one is the best.) It's a very different set of colors from the previous crabs, and I think it works nicely.
Cheers,
Tom
