Octopus - (Copyright Craig Bertram Smith-2009)
Pencil on paper (15cm X 18cm)


My love for the sea and all its weird and interesting creatures continually draws me to examine and study even the most alien of all sea creatures – the Octopus. They really are fascinating animals and virtually have no skeleton and can squeeze into just about any crevice or hole. Even more interesting, is its unique ability to change colours and textures, in an instant, to match exactly to their habitat and surroundings. This was a perfect excuse for me to loose myself in the detail of the creature. _________________________________________________________________________
