Lucy Clayton - Spider Crab No.9


watercolour and ink
framed size: 44 x 66cm

I have never seen a live Spider Crab in the wild. Whenever I go rock-pooling I collect fragments of their lumpy shells as I find the inside texture fascinating. This specimen was bought from the fishmongers and as the drawing stage for this painting took quite a while, the crab was frozen so that it wouldn't perish too quickly.
