Georgia's Shadow

My classes are now posted on TeachStreet --It's a great online resource for local classes of all kinds. Welcome to my new visitors and students from there!

While Georgia O'Keeffe is well-known for her flower paintings, her skull paintings are my personal favorites.
As a result, just like Georgia, I have a collection of animal skulls in my studio as well.

Since skulls are usually white/off-white, I find they also make fantastic and dramatic watercolor subjects.
This watercolor was done on Arches cold press using many granular pigments such as cerulean which adds to the exposed, weathered feel.
