Purple Crab ~ Buy at Fairweather Gallery in Seaside
Watercolor including iridescent blue sealed 8 x 8 x 1 5/8" American Watermedia Easel Panel
After being juried into the Marine Elements Show earlier this year at the Giustina Gallery, I have been fascinated with all the sea life. I was watching a video on a fisherman in Coos Bay hauling in his catch of the day and was surprised when there were several "purple" crabs which they considered a special catch. After researching the species I had to paint one. Some of them can also be more reddish.
