Work in Progress: Dueling Octopus (Sucker Punch)

I finally got to start my big octopus piece last night. This measures 24 × 36 inches and is on extra fine art board. Currently I am working with graphite, colored pencils and oil pastels on the piece, but I am also probably going to use iridescent gold acrylic in the background (or maybe even spring for gold leaf). I hope to submit this to an upcoming juried show with an approaching April deadline…. so wish me luck!

So here are some work in progress photos from today. Mind the messy studio! I have three arts shows coming up in April so it’s starting to get a bit over-crowded in there……!
