Value and brushwork study.

Vanitas I by Meg Lyman

12×6″ oil on canvas

Etsy listing

A quick study in the impermanence of beauty. This was my first time trying lead white (Rublev Lead White No. 2), and it was awesome. It really makes a difference with the textures and is great for painting skulls.

Below is the scan of the unvarnished version. Subtle but interesting differences.

Nutria Jaw by Meg Lyman

4×4″ oil on board

I’m fascinated with the delightfully odd shape of nutria jaws. They remind me of flowers, so I made this one pink. Plus I wanted to try out my Old Holland Ultramarine Red-Pink.

If I were a cephalopod that could change colors, I’d dress up like a bongo sometimes. Snail shells for horns and clam shells for ears. Cuttlefish cosplay.
