Summer is probably my favorite season. I love the warm weather, even if it does get pretty hot here in Atlanta and I love going to the beach. The past few years we have been making a family trip to the beach with all of the kids and grandkids and sometimes even the great-grandparents too. I am soaking up all of the memories and stories to tell when I get old ( well even older!)
So, this Summer I wanted to do a few watercolor sketches that were fresh and bright. This one of the crab of course reminded me of the ocean. I kept the background white for a clean look. Most of the mixing I do is right on the paper with the water and paint. Not much mixing of colors on the palette, that helps keep that fresh feeling.
Can you see him smiling right back at you???
