A Little Blue Crab

With a little bit of acrylic aquatint in the old chemistry box and some burnishing to take away areas of the aquatint to create a more three dimensional effect to the crab this little gem was pulled from the press. The blue brought out the intricate lines that I created with the needle and looked more natural than a black ink.
