Octopus in Kelp Forest

Watercolor Illustration

Medium: Watercolor on coldpress paper.

Description: Many species of octopus can change their skin color and texture to camouflage themselves or frighten away a predator. The octopus in this painting is doing the latter, by turning mostly white with splashes of bright red and darting off through the kelp.

You can buy prints of this illustration in my Etsy shop and on t-shirts, stickers, and other goodies in my Zazzle shop.
