Strange but true; I was telling my girlfriend I wanted to paint another skull. 15 minutes later I get a e-mail for a commission for a skull painting. Serendipity at it's finest.

toned with red

simple sketch

color throw down

All covered and the major shapes loosely in place time for
smaller and smaller shapes till finish

this is were I wanted to leave it and call it done but the client
didn't want the feathered top with those fancy brushstrokes.

finished, client happy I happy.
12" x 12"
oil on board
This was a extremely fun painting to do. I hope it shows
