All boxed in Crab (SOLD)

I decided to post a work in progress. I have spent a few hours defining the shapes of my crab all boxed in.
His backs to the wall bored. Spent the day with my crab. I like it enough to call it finished, but I will probably kill a bit more of the red, and I did. I finally said enough and signed it. I think this is my favorite crab to date. I am going to do a big lobster real soon.
thanks for looking.
This painting is sold.
Oil on canvas 36"X24"

Hi Rick, I can't keep up with you. I don't stop by for a few days and there's a ton of new paintings to see! Is your red crab going to end up blue? Or is this one posing while already cooked???

the blues and whites cooled this down perfectly. i love his shadow and open claw. Great composition and brushwork as always.

Really really nice one. I can see why this a favorite. When zooming in I can see some very nice brushwork.
