"Octopus in Love" Watercolor Painting

Hey everyone just wanted to share another one of my creative gift solutions of Christmas for one of my friends.



James is a good friend of mine that I have known for probably 4 years and we met online back when Xanga was realllyyy cool.

But he likes Octopus and so we came up with the concept of "Octopus in Love." I created the cartoon octopus from simple sketches, scanned them in and printed them on some watercolor paper I had laying around my house.

From there I broke out my brushes (instead of the usual crayola crayons) and did something I dread; watercolor painting. I need the practice. I took my time and picked orange and brown colors I knew he and I both favor. For the background I just did a blue and green wash of paint.







I put it in a frame and ta-dah instant masterpiece.



Have a great day everyone!!
