Three Shrimp

I am taking a tiny break from the mugshots to do a fun painting, slightly more restful...
I did a quick practice on one shrimp yesterday and you can see how the lights cooked it, it is the pink one. I think it had row in it -- the coral color on that shrimp had to be eggs, right? I see I am uncertain about shrimp reproduction. I tried to use thick paint here which doesn't show much, also I used my very small bristle brushes as opposed to my larger flats and brights. I am learning my way around the brushes at last! In addition, I purposely used a larger panel, thinking to have the empty space around the forms have more importance. Or the colored space give the forms more importance. Whichever.


  1. I really like this one Jean. The shrimp look great on the blue. Perfectly rendered and nice, thick paint. Can't beat that.
