Inspired by Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri’s synthetic polymer paint on canvas
Sharpie black fine point marker
Acrylic paint (5-10 colors- I USED 6 COLORS- DESERT LOOKING COLORS)
Thick Paint Brush
Scrap Paper (for testing colors/ and what not)
Position paper horizontally.
Using the thick paint brush, paint white paper all over. – I choose a rusty color (red, yellow, dash of blue)
Once paint has dried draw a reptile with your pencil and outline with a black sharpie.
Fill in the reptile with a solid color.
Now it’s time to add dots. Start adding your 1st dot by the lizard’s head- continue this using the same color until you have gone all the way around. (Space dots evenly) Repeat this process using different colors until you have finished.
Fun Fact- Aboriginal dot originated in the desert using natural substances.
