The Hairy Squid

…because the fur keeps it warm
Acryllics, waterproof marker, marker pen and Chinese newspaper on canvas.
40×80 cm

This painting took some time to complete, because I lost interest when I was halfway painting it. Luckily, I regained my motivation to finish it when I got inspired by my older painting Chinese Rabbit-Yeti to use Chinese newspaper, which I still had lying around. Yet I wasn’t sure about being able to stick the newspaper onto the canvas, which made it an experiment I was somewhat unsure about. Using pure white acryllics as glue turned out way better than I had anticipated. I then finished the painting within a few hours.

Just don’t ask me why I painted a squid with fur…
