The Stone Crab is commonly found in the marshes of South Carolina to Florida to Lousiana. Their claws are so large that they are considered a popular delicacy. After one or both of their claws are removed for harvesting, the crab is then returned to the sea where they can miraculously grow back their claws. Fully grown back, in 3 years time, that is.

The stone crab was a fun drawing to do because I got to the chance to experiment with texture on a fascinating creature. I wanted to apply spontaneous brushwork as if the crab was blending in with the rocks or sand. This watercolor painting of mine is remastered for 11 x 17 size print. My illustration is available at my store. Check it out :)
