This month, I am artist-in-residence at the de Young Museum. I recently completed this musical anatomy mural in the Kimball Gallery facing the museum’s windows. It’s high contrast black and white so that it can be seen from outside (the windows are somewhat tinted). The medium is black acrylic paint, although the style is similar to my pen & ink technique. I drew the basic design on the wall freehand in pencil, and then painted over it.
