View Full Version : Platypus Dreaming

[LEFT][FONT=Lucida Console]Hello everyone. I have been a member since January, but this will be my first post, so I thought I would put in a photo of my first major piece. I called it Platypus Dreaming and it was done in the style of the Australian aborigines. It was comissioned from my grandson's school, where it now hangs. Any critique would be appreciated as I am endeavouring to improve my skill and artistic approach. :wave:

wow, am I glad you brought this back and resized your pi. It's great!
I think this is traditional aberigini style art? Highly designed and graphic.
Keep up the good work and also welcome to Wet canvas. It's a pretty fun place to visit.
