Watercolor Skull

Dirk Wild of Pennsylvania created this watercolor skull. Watercolor has become one of my favorite mediums to work with. It's great to build and reduce color intensity, and manipulate the shapes and blending. It had a mix of softness and strength that can help create beautiful paintings like this one. With the blurred background, it looks as if the skull is sitting on a blanket in the clearing of a dark forest. Perhaps it's being discovered, or buried...only the artist truly knows.
