Painted Skull


Acrylic, 30×48″

So finally after many different sketches the final skull emerged.  I was inspired by Georgia O’Keefe’s skull paintings, but chose to incorporate my own experimentation into the process.  The result was created by spraying water on the canvas after each application of paint.  Sometimes the canvas was so wet the paint would start sliding down the canvas in chunks.  This technique is definitely something I want to experiment with further.
