The more I give to you, the more I die by Devin-Francisco The more I give to you, the more I die by Devin-Francisco
"I come along but I don't know where you're taking me
I shouldn't go but you're wrentching, dragging, shaking me
Turn off the sun, pull the stars from the sky
The more I give to you, the more I die"

Inspired from the Nine Inch Nails song The Perfect Drug - from the album Lost Highway Soundtrack

11x17 watercolor, Speedball super black India ink - Contrast, Level corrections done in photoshop

What a stunning painting! The artist demonstrates incredible mastery of the medium and truly stunning control in the brush strokes. The use of lines in the trees in the background sets off the subject and guides the eye across the whole of the composition in a very pleasing way. The skulls that comprise the ground compliment the dia de los muertos face of the subject brilliantly and promotes a consistency that ties the whole piece together. Also, the conservative use of color of the flower and the slight blue tint to the background in an otherwise monochrome piece adds "pop" and interest that lends a moodiness to the piece complementary to the subject.

Also, a Nine Inch Nails reference? Be still my beating heart.

Well done!

Catrinas are a cliché by now, but for some reason I enjoyed it.
