Another Artist Rendition of My Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab Photograph

Back in 2016, I posted an artist’s rendition of my Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab photograph.

Several months ago, I received another request from artist Burton Keeble (originally from Charlottesville, Virginia, but now lives near Portland, Oregon) to sketch the same photo.  I felt honored again!  It was exciting to recently hear from Burton, sharing his completed artwork.

Here is my photo:

And here is Burton’s drawing.  Wow, it is quite awesome with such beautiful shading and detail!

I wrote Burt to thank him, and he shared with me that he just started drawing this past November.  What?!!  I am amazed; obviously, you have talent, Burt.  Keep up your awesome work!

And how fitting to share this on my blog with my return to the Chesapeake Bay area.   🙂

  1. How cool to have your beautiful photo immortalised as a piece of art, though who can improve on the Master Designers work? It is an interesting rendition Donna.

  2. Congratulations, Donna. Your photograph is great, with that funny face and those varied colors. Not being able to draw anything other than stick figures, I am always impressed with other people’s skills. Well done, Burt!
