Octopus Painting

There’s an art bar where I live and I went out with some friends. I kinda just winged this while having drinks. It was a super fan and relaxing experience!

It’s not my best painting, but considering how many beers I’d had by the end, I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out!

Octopuses will forever be my go to when I don’t know what to work on. Something about drawing all those tentacles is terribly relaxing to me.

The sandpaper broke right off the sander. Whoops. I’ve been informed it happens all the time and is nothing to worry about. Whew! I’ve been on a breaking things spree and that was one less thing to worry about.20160508_173318

I’m definitely excited to start working on it again. Maybe after work when I need to let off some aggression after having to deal with co-workers and clients….
