New Years weekend Still lifes

Here is this mornings still life done in gouache and it took a little over 2 hours. I went for the Gorgon/Death/Cutting Instrument motif in this arrangement. I learned a lot about moving color around in this piece.
Below Is from Sunday its a series of anatomical studies in gouache and one Alien. I think I learned the most out from this piece than any of them so far, I really realized that with this gouache you can really push the paint around and hint at anatomical structure and the eye and mind will fill in all the details.

This is From Saturday I wanted to go for the whole secret laboratory look, I don't know that I did the light from the actual set up justice as it was glowing quite a bit more than what I have it here I may have to try this again in the future.
