Description

Need a few extra brain cells? Who doesn't? Here's a small selection of neurons, inspired by the work done a few years ago by Harvard and MIT researchers with mouse brain cells (you can google “Brainbows” for lots more information). In classic black and white, with (of course) all the shades of gray matter.

This is an original watercolor, 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. Then I do this a bunch more times. To make the really skinny bits, I use a toothpick dipped in paint.

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.

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