Eeew, nasal membrane…
So, this is a weird but beautiful painting of some nasal mucous membrane from a rabbit. Its based on a anatomic sketch by Gusaf Retzius with the fantastic german title: Parti der Geruchsschleimhaut eines Kaninchens.
The original sketch was in my opionion way to messy and confusing to be appreciated as art, probably because it was’nt meant as art to begin with. So basically I cropped the best part of the image, and used as reference.
It has been a long time since i painted something abstract, so this was very appreciated and the result turned out pretty nice, I think.
