Combined watercolor & pencil drawing by Yasuaki Okamoto

These paintings are part of my latest project: combining two materials into one work of art – pencil drawing and watercolor on paper. The theme of these paintings are “Death” and “Animal”. I think death might be one of my major themes. My other preoccupations are: animals, animal life and animal behavior etc. therefore these artworks was include them too. I chose these animals because I thought its easier to have sympathy for them. I drew their bone with pencil drawing as an icon of death and painted the rest with watercolor. With the title, “Guess What”, I want viewers to think, “What happened with this animal?”  Yasuaki_GuessWhatSeries_DYasuaki_GuessWhatSeries_Ftumblr_o8qbt23jJM1rv33k2o4_500tumblr_o8qbt23jJM1rv33k2o1_500 Yasuaki_GuessWhatSeries_B Yasuaki_GuessWhatSeries_C
