Hanging on by a thread

Like yesterday's post, this was a sketch I posted here a while back. Today I had the chance to tight up the drawing and paint it. This is done on 11" x  14" Strathmore 4 ply Bristol Board. The medium is watercolors with a bit of colored ink.

Wow, Gene. Most excellent! As she prepares for a little boogey boarding, that little crab looks like he is having quite the ride himself. Cute pic, as usual. I always love the "innocence" in your pin-ups. Very Elvgren-ish in that regard. Sexy, but cute at the same time.

Hey Royce, thanks for the Elvgren comparison. I have always been a fan of his work. And I guess it shows. :)

A green eyed blonde, Royce the crab, and a cool wave Gene Gonzales signature. A welcomed post as I laze around the beach in Ocean City Maryland!
