Skin deep

Skin deep by Nela Dunato

A slightly gory ink and watercolor portrait sketch. (I may have watched too many episodes of “Bones”.) Female portraits and skulls are two of my favorite motifs in art, and in this one I decided to combine them in a single image. It reminds me a bit of my 2014 painting “Layers”.

You can watch the video recording of the sketching process from start to finish on my blog.
