Shimmering, unusual technique for an artwork OCTOPUS

Well... this one was FUN!!!!
I've used the technique before, about 8 or 9 years ago, on a larger work. I've been going to do it on ACEOs but haven't seemed to get around to it. I was recently reminded of it in a current magazine, so decided to do one, and 'hit' on the idea of doing an octopus.

The auction is 3 days only.

MUST see to appreciate.
The listing had WIP photos of the process.
This shimmers with iridescent colors!

watercolor + ink
ACEO - 2.5 x 3.5" on watercolor paper.

"Deep Sea-cur"

"Cupcake" cute sketch for baby announcements?

This original of this image is up on eBay for sale. I have put it on Cafe Press as products, and used it as a guide to make a graphic avatar.

A fun one to do. Not realistic of course, but cute never-the-less.




Just a very simple watercolor and ink ACEO (2.5x3.5")

Just listed.

"CupCake"

A whimsical artwork, watercolor & ink that I did a while back. I've used it as the basis for a tiny graphic available on networking sites, and also on Cafe Press where I've put it onto bibs, onesies, together with the lettering. A fun work. I thought it was cute. Hope you do, too.
