5″ x 5″ Silverpoint, gouache highlights, on clayboard. I see where this is going… picked up a free copy of Gray’s Anatomy. (Click to Zoom!) Thinking–histology, microscopic structures of cell and tissues. I mean, really–look at these!
First art I was paid for–microscopic studies my professor in an embryology class had me do for him. Crow quill pen… all stippling. Took me forever, for $5.00 each.
It just occurred to me that THIS is what I was responding to in the patters I saw in broken pavement (HERE for instance).
