The Blue Lobster – I absolutely loved painting this chap.  He was a real challenge but a really, really, fun one.

I created a technique, that I’ve used on the main body of him.  You can see under the many, many, different layers, that I’ve created a kind of bleeding effect.  I’ve washed it with the tip of the feather, with a very, very fine blue, then let that water hang around a bit.  Then just touched it with the nib, and a few little bits of blue to give it that mottled effect on its shell.  I then worked into it again with lots of different coloured blues, inky blues, purples and a little bit of pink.

To make the lobsters pincers stand out I worked into it with thicker ink.  I worked into it again, and again, and again, to create the layering effect. This also made the pincers as round as possible and soft as possible.  I then used this lovely magenta colour on the antenna to really make them pop.

He is mounted on face-mount, which I really enjoy playing with.  It does mean that you can’t get anything wrong to hide it with the mount.  I’ve used the dark grey face-mount to make it powerful in drawing your eye into the picture.

This Blue Lobster Original has just been made into a limited-edition print.  There are only 50 of them in A3 size, available to buy in the prints section.
