100 Painted Skulls: #54

To celebrate year 5 of Skull-A-Day (June 2011-June 2012) I've decided to paint 100 skulls on 4 x 4in (10.16 x 10.16 cm) wooden panels over the course of the year... 

After the over-the-top color of the last piece, I decided I needed to go the other direction with something darker and monochromatic. I first painted a base layer roughing in the light and shadow and then did several thinner layers using the gloss medium on top to get the depth and detail. I really like how it came together and definitely want to do more this way.

If you'd like to own this painting you can get it in the Skull-A-Day store HERE.
