I painted this a few months ago now. Its a great little fox skull given to me by an old friend. I have painted it a few times – skulls may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I have always found them great subjects. A skull is a great symbol of both time and impermanence – both of which have no actual form. You cant paint time but only subjects that suggest its arising or passing.
I am pleased to say that I have already found someone interested in this painting – but thought it would be a nice addition to the blog. Im hoping to get to wales sometime soon and see if I can find some bigger sheep skulls that also make great subjects for painting.
I must say I get a mixed response from my students about painting skulls. What do you think?
