Red Octopus

$750.00

       I was lucky enough to encounter a real octopus whilst snorkeling in Greece one year. Its position was given away by the midden of crustacean shells mounded on the sea floor below; once the octopus realized I was aware of its presence it came undulating away from the rock that it was previously perfectly camouflaged. I was awe struck and that experience will stay with me forever.

      The original drawing was commissioned for the front of a special edition score  published by Faber Music of 'The Tempest' an opera by the fabulous British composer Thomas Ades. His otherworldly music evoked the memory of this encounter.
