ABOUT:

This original painting is based on an african wildcat skull I own. The specimen passed of natural causes in a breeding program in South Africa).

Many firsts here, I haven't done many flora paintings and this is the first time I try to render a skull on wood panel in watercolour. I also experimented with designer's gouache and acrylics(for highlights).

Watercolour on a wood surface is not typical and I get a lot of questions about it. The surface was sanded then prepared with Daniel Smith Transparent Watercolour ground. It can't take as much abuse as a good watercolour paper, but I just love the look that's worth a few more hours of rendering and struggle.

Thank you for looking/spreading the word. I hope this piece finds a nice home!
