Good morning all. Glad to be back after a brief R and R in Florida...To start the week off let's take a gander at the wonderful work of Derek Nobbs, an artist who lives in the Pacific northwest and has a weakness for " skulls and scissors", by his own admission. He paints with watercolor, ink and gouache on paper that's perfectly 'aged' using tea, coffee, dirt and whiskey. Check out close-ups of painting details here on his blog. Truly impressive.
