This is a one of a kind watercolor painting of a pyramidal neuron, a type of brain cell that performs important motor and cognitive functions. Put more simply, they help you to move and think! Perfect for your favorite scientist, brain geek or deep thinker.

I painted this using a resist technique, kind of like batik. I used a rubbery fluid to draw the design of the neuron. After it dried, I wet the whole paper and applied watercolor paint in various shades of green, letting them bleed together naturally to form interesting patterns. After the whole thing dried, I removed the resist, revealing the white of the paper.

Painted with Winsor and Newton Artist’s Watercolors on Arches paper.

Overall size 8 x 10 inches, including acid-free white mat and backing board. Standard size for easy framing. Signed.

Makes a nice pair with this spiny neuron:
