Skull is a large scale oil painting on board by Kim Curtis. With her illustration background, Kim sought to re-create an encyclopaedia style illustration as Wall Art. In the same way as she would approach a similar book illustration, a number of reference photographs were used to achieve the most accurate representation of the subject. The grey tones give the painting a vintage printed look whilst the loose brush marks and lustre of the oil add a decorative interest to the piece.
As with all the panels, we carefully cut out the shape with either a jig or scoll saw depending on the size and inticacy of the piece. The painting is protected with several layers of UV resistant artists varnish and edges protected all the way round with a decorative, yet practical, metal strip. The backs are painted in a neutral, flat colour and stamped and signed by the artist.
