Viscera (work in progress)

















I stopped using watercolours in my early teens because of what I perceived as their anaemic, watery lack of impact; so its only proper that I return to watercolours in order to paint guts.
(opinions welcome on which rotation you prefer.)

I like the original version and it takes guts to paint guts! I thought they were life drawings, and like either orientation! Very nice watercolour technique, not at all anemic!

Thanks a million Mary!
I suppose it doesn't have to be guts, because I started by just drawing organic shapes; parts of it could equally be flower petals, limbs, whatever you want.

really beautiful. Reminds me a little of Georgia O'Keeffe's up-close flower studies.
