This week has afforded me time to get closer to the finish line with the large octopus commission I have been assigned. It's been a great break from the smaller, more detailed and concept-driven work of the Gracie Brave children's book illustrations of the last few months. 

I will put the final touches and details on in the next week and schedule delivery ! 

First layers: acrylic, colored pencil and vintage papers.

Second layer: gel medium, tissue paper and a layer of gel medium for pastels.

Third and final layers: gouache, ink, watercolor, colored pencil, pastel pencil, oil stick.
