AEDM - Day 3 - Crabby

Hi everyone, 

I didn't start out crabby when I started this piece because I thought it was going to be a fairly simple sketch. My plan was to do a plain black and white crab but, as I worked on it, I decided to add colour and more detail. What I thought was going to be a quick and easy sketch turned into a more complex one,   thanks to my obsession with detail. So that made me a little crabby with myself.
 
I wasn't at home most of the day either because we popped over to visit my Mum. Then, when we dropped my sister home, we stayed for a cuppa before heading home. My other son visited late afternoon and, when he left, it was time to sort dinner.  It's been a pretty full-on day and not much time to sketch. 

So this crab sketch is a work-in-progress. 
I will finish him tomorrow and post pics.

For now, this is as far as I got 


I will journal the days events into the blank area when completed

That's all, folks. 

Love, Light and Peace to All.

  3. Oh wow, Serena. I am totally impressed with this beautiful crab. I can relate to being obsessive about detail, although I've never created anything anywhere NEARLY as beautiful as what you are working on.

    1. So glad you like the crab, Elizabeth. Yep, my obsession with detail can work against me at times when I want to be loose and care-free with my art.

  9. My dear friend Sami who hosts Monday Murals (I'm a weekly participant) is a member of some ladies voting group. She explained to me once that it was illegal NOT to vote in Australia (she lives in Perth). I guess I was surprised more people didn't know that about Australia. I wish we could declare the day a legal holiday here in the States so everyone had the opportunity to go to the polls without fear of being late getting to work.

    1. It's been that way for as long as I can remember. I think it's important that all vote as it makes it a more fair result. :)
