GOOSENECK BARNACLES, SEA LETTUCE, & CRAB CLAWS – WATERCOLOR SKETCHES

Barnicles & Crab Claws 2011 WATERMARKWalking along the beach after a winter storm brings up Gooseneck barnacles to the beach.  What an odd creature!  I also love finding empty crab claws with their sunset colors & taking them home to sketch.  Not too long ago I read about a chef serving Gooseneck barnacles as an appetizer dish.  Not for me!  When I see Sea lettuce on the tide pool rocks, it just pops out because of it’s pretty & bright chartreuse green color.
