Petri Dish Spectrum 2 - original watercolor collage by Michele Banks. Artologica on etsy.
This Heart’s Blood is an original watercolor painting of some aspects of the human heart and circulatory system. The heart and the blood are the basis of many great works of art, but usually in idealized or metaphorical forms. This painting instead focuses on the beauty of the physical structures and processes that move the blood through our bodies and keep us alive. Click through for more.
La Brain en Rose 3 is gallery of brain cells and structures, inspired by the work done a few years ago by some Harvard and MIT researchers with mouse brain cells (you can google “Brainbows” for lots more information). In warm, deep shades of pink, rose and magenta with white accents. Click through for more info and other paintings.
One of the things I do with practice paintings or general “painting fails” is to rip them up and make them into collages, like this tree. This is more eco-friendly than just throwing all that paper away, but also slightly ironic because watercolor paper doesn’t use trees - it’s made of cotton : ) Click through for more info.
