Description

The embryos of the Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly) are an important model organism for geneticists and developmental biologists. Their small size, short generation time, and large brood size make them especially useful for genetic studies, while their transparency is ideal for developmental studies. I painted a bunch in various stages of development in fresh, springlike colors.

Drosophila Embryos is an original watercolor painting, made using a mixed wet-in-wet technique. I used a resist to outline the embryos, and then painted the background a solid light yellow. When it was dry, I re-wet the individual shapes and allowed the watercolor to "bleed" inside each one. When the whole thing was dry, I removed the resist, and voila!

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

Overall size 11 x 14 inches in an acid-free white mat with backing board. Standard size for easy framing. Signed. Totally unique!

THIS IS AN ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING, NOT A PRINT. THERE IS ONLY ONE.
