There’s something that always appealed to me about lobsters. I’m not normally a big still life fan, but the iconic nature of Kalf’s lobster is captivating. As you can see from my page extension, I misjudged the height and needed to glue a bit more onto my sketchbook. Click on the image of the original painting to find out more about it.

This piece has influenced my own work, I’m starting another large tree drawing, this time themed loosely on Saint Sebastian.
