The Octopus Tree by oodreysmart The Octopus Tree by oodreysmart
The Octopus Tree

I came up with the original concept back in High School. I came back to it when brainstorming ideas for my boyfriend's tattoo leg sleeve that I have already started working on.

It has become part of my creation: Zombie Ocean

Watercolor on 9x12" sketchbook paper

This is awesome. When my oldest daughter came home with hickies all over her neck, I asked her where they came from. She told me she had been in the park and hit by a tree. I told her it must have been an an octopus tree. Thank you so much.

oh wow when i look at it the color is so striking at first, then if you look at the water i can see half the body us above the water and that had to be hard work to obtain that look going over it? but i like the murky feel of the water and then u see the fish how cute i love it

Thanks! It was a little difficult to get that look. This was my first full watercolor piece. I did the whole thing as a sort of experiment.
