Zodiac signs: Cancer...



Na verschillende pogingen om Gemini, de Tweelingen, op een aanvaardbare manier te schilderen, heb ik besloten dat even te laten rusten. Ik ben geen ervaren portretschilder en om dan meteen een tweeling te schilderen valt niet mee. Een kreeft is dan een stuk eenvoudiger. 

After several attempts to paint Gemini, the Twins, in an acceptable way, I decided to let that rest for a while. I am not an experienced portrait painter, and to paint twins right away proved to be very hard. A lobster is a lot simpler.

  2. This looks like a very tasty zodiac sign! You captured the colors perfectly. I love how loose you painted it and yet, there is so much accuracy, including the tiny dots on the back.

    Hi John, great to see you back in blogland!

    Carol, I prefer soft and furry animals too, but painting this lobster made me like him more and more. He is cute really. :)
