Day 2 of the 30 in 30 painting challenge – 2015. In keeping with my Florida theme, I decided to finally get around to doing another painting of my crab friend. The earlier crab painting sold, and with festivals coming up next month, I wanted to have another one.
It isn’t easy to paint something more than once. Maybe one gets over it, but it is tempting to try and remember how you did it before. That can be distracting, so I put it out of my mind. I wanted to bring out more blue, but since I wasn’t looking at the earlier one, I really didn’t know if I’d succeeded. Interesting comparing now that I’m done.
I don’t promise I won’t tweak it some more. But in the rush to do a painting a day, one has to stop!
