Tarot Reader Girl - Optical Illusion Skull Portrait - Halloween
I was always bewitched by optical illusions in works of art, especially in ancient engravings. The famous artists liked "to cipher" a mystical image of a skull in the works either; my favorite picture is "The Ambassadors" by Hans Holbein the Younger. In anticipation of Halloween I have given in to mysticism of this day too and have created this work where two young girls are reading the tarot cards, creating illusion of an ominous skull.
This graphic work will become a fine gift for Halloween and will add a mystical aura to your house.
This drawing was hand-painted, using professional Winsor&Newton; watercolors and 140lb (300g/m2) cotton watercolor paper.
Size: 15 x 19 inches ( 40 x 50 cm)
I sign this original artwork.
