#12: 52 In 2010 - Shadows

I chose to use something different for this one. I started with the same Carolina Cover card stock and applied several layers of gesso and tissue paper. The background is india ink that I smeared on using a rag and after it dried, I sanded it back some. I then used sepia & white chalk along with charcoal to draw the skull. After a layer of spray fixative, I used watercolor to add a yellowish hue. The squiggle outlines and corners were done with sharpie poster paint pens. It was a great way to experiment and gave me practice drawing objects I have sitting around the house. Yes, there's a skull I use as a bookend for my DVDs...LOL
