      Super powerful colors and it worked so well with the black octopi! what's your technique of creating those different color blends? really dig it. Did you layer them on top of each other such as painting the bright yellow first then adding the blue for different values and then the red?

        Thank you, and yes I layered them starting with the yellow then moving on to the blues and reds. But the blending, after I add so many colors sometimes I choose to let it dry up just a little to where it has that roughish swipe look once you go over it with brushstrokes again.
