WET INTO WET: OCTOPUS WITH TOY



Started this one by prewetting inside the lines (did a bit of drawing on the watercolor paper before starting).  Then adding more color to the octopus using Daniel Smith Shadow Violet (a perfect color for an octopus!).  He has a toy = a yellow Lego piece.

So I am calling this one

Let Go 'o My Lego!


Will finish it up (the Lego is bright yellow in the photo reference) and show it again when it's done.


In the meantime, Birgit O'Connor is having a free webinar TODAY sharing her atmospheric landscapes painting and techniques.  If you're interested, just go here to get the link and sign up (check on Online Classes and it should come up as a drop-down menu choice).
