A humorous moment while painting my octopus:
I had covered the octopus by painting on resist to protect it from more layers of blue washes.
When I was done, I had the satisfaction of revealing my octopus as I slowly peeled away the rubbery layers. It was physical irony.
By the way, I ended up covering it again and adding a lot more greens...and I had the extra fun of peeling off tentacle-like resist again.
