Cell Division Blue 5 is an original watercolor painting which explores the beauty of the natural process of mitosis in a variety of shades of blue and white. The palette puts the emphasis on the spectacular natural shapes formed by the wet paint, and kind of reminds me of a cyanotype. Perfect for the lab or office, or for any cool, modern room.

This painting was made using a wet-in-wet technique. After I draw a grid on the paper, I paint an individual square, wait a few seconds, and then add a second color of wet paint. The paint “bleeds” naturally, creating either a “cell” with awesome natural fractal patterns or a big old blob. If the former occurs, I wait a few more seconds and add another color – the nucleus or nuclei. Then I do this a bunch more times in different colors.

Painted with Winsor and Newton Artist’s Watercolors on extra heavy Arches paper (300lb).

Overall size 16 × 20 in an acid-free white mat with backing board. Standard size for easy framing. Signed.
