This is a lush, bright, thickly textured impressionist painting of a classic (orange!) blue crab created by artist Sharon West.
It is an original, one-of a kind painting created using the finest acrylic paints and mediums, using mostly palette knives, non-traditional implements, and some brush work. After sketching the image and creating the design, Sharon lays paint down in layers that ultimately catch light and shadows as well as contributing unusual color elements to the image as the next layer is applied. This technique not only creates a three-dimensional quality to the original as well as prints, but it also adds a richness and dramatic effect to her work.
