American Museum of Natural History - Styracosaurus
I'm having so much fun doing these.
Having flashbacks of Smithsonian collection dinosaur models that I would feverishly horde.
The blue background is painted with an Azurite watercolor. There is a slight patterning to the surface that is fascinating me. Although its actually pretty mild.
This fossil within a foam or plaster mold. You can see it here at the museums official site. So it made me wonder how to resolve the surrounding areas of the painting.
I like what I did although it leads me so question the white boarders of the page. I actually am thinking of really defining the boarders so they look like a comic boarder. Its a debating I'm activating thinking about currently. I may have to try and experiment or two.
