Octopus – April 19th 2014

I have recently started to “paint”. I thought it would be neat to post pictures of the paintings and a little about what I learned. This is one of my most recent pictures, one of two in my ocean series.

I painted both backgrounds at the same time to make sure the mixed paints matched. I love the multi-color background. I started with painting it all blue, then mixed lighter and darker colors on the canvas. After a few days (or months) of drying I took them out to add the rest. I love the gobs of paint and am still trying to figure it all out.
