I was so happy to see Ronell's recent scampi sketches----they reminded me of how much I love painting and drawing sea creatures and I couldn't wait to get to the fish market to find some models myself! I learned last Saturday that it is not the season for shrimp and blue crabs now. I'll just have to wait until spring, but spring will come.
In the meantime, to remind myself and you of what fun it is to paint these creatures, here are some paintings and sketches from the past two or three years. These are MY visions of sugarplums!
