Crawfish completed

"Crawfish on Newsprint, 10 x 10"  original watercolor on paper by Carrie Waller
Hi Everyone,

I have completed my crawfish!!  Yay!  Now I have to get my TWSA entry mailed off and work on a couple more commissions and some paintings for my workshop.  I can get this all done in a week and a half, no problem:) 

Hope you're having a great week!  We have beautiful weather here, and the pool is just about up to the right temperature, can't wait!

Oh and Daniel Smith's perinone orange and permanent deep red are some of my new favorite colors.  They make for the brightest most beautiful red!



  1. Wonderful Carrie. Good luck with all. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate.

  2. Carrie, that is amazing. I love watching your works in progress. The new owner will be thrilled.

  3. Just beautiful Carrie! WOW! I love that deep red, I'll have to try out those colors. :) The sparkle on the shell is fabulous. Sending *good vibes* for you to get everything done that you need to. :D

  4. Love the red - it's almost three-dimensional, guess that's the clever use of reflected light.
    Love it!
    The wind is cutting like a knife in wildest Yorkshire - few more months before pools!

  5. Loved the original....WANT this newer version.....AWESOME Carrie!

  6. Well this is absolutely STUNNING! I loved the first and I love this too. And the text adds so much further interest - I want to read it :0)

  7. Oh Carrie!!! Your work is Outstanding!!! The red is so rich in color ...the shadow work perfect ...and lastly, the newspaper is beautifully painted.!! Congratulations!!

  8. Incredible painting! Thank you for sharing the steps. The reds are amazing! Well done!
