This is one of a new series of small paintings called Little Gems. This one is 8" by 8" and is a study of a crab - a beautiful sea creature. I have used iridescent gel on the main body which enhances the colours. The sides are painted so further framing is unnecessary. The appearance of the background colour of this artwork changes in different light. Crabs attract a mate through chemical (pheromones), visual, acoustic, or vibratory means. When fertilisation has taken place, the eggs are released onto the female's abdomen, below the tail flap, secured with a sticky material. In this location, they are protected during embryonic development and later released into the water. Crabs have to moult many times to become adult and can die if they fail to completely shed their shell. Recent research suggests they can feel pain!
