This is a little gouache painting I had done on cardboard after watching the film
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and seeing all the little sea creatures throughout.

Gouache is fairly opaque, so you don't really need to put it on very thick. I like it very much!

i love this, rosered!!  great job!  i love the colors you chose to use and how saturated they are.  the crab is also rad.

this reminds me of a street about a mile or so long near where i grew up called the nautical mile.  it was on a canal and lined with fish stores, tackle shops, and seafood restaurants...all with a nautical theme, kind of in a kitchy way, which is what always made it cool to me.  your crab would be very at home there.  thanks for sharing him!
