Welcome to Wednesday and Friday, as I am a bit pressed for time, on my blog

There is a new art meme or co-op on the horizon! Creative Tuesday on Dotty Hill, Michael MacVean Illustration has retired and new one is born.

Every Wednesday there is a new theme and blog link up. But you may also participate by posting on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #scribblepicnic. If you do, don’t forget to tag @dottyhill, so that Michael will find you.

As always I am not sure how often I will be participating. Themes are a good thing to get your creative juices going, however with limited time my picture might really end up being a scribble :).

We will see. But for today the theme is ‘octopus’. And as coincidence has it I had this vision of an octopus girl in my head for a while now, so – I put it to paper.

First in pencil, then ink and in the end watercolor. I even made a video of the coloring part. You will find it as well as the finished piece below.




If I have time I will be linking with one or more of the fine people in this collection – check them out!
