Aboriginal Paintings

Hello there!

I remember going to the Pitts River Museum in Oxford and saw this really lovely aboriginal painting on display and it inspired me to do something (as well as I find the animals in the painting really funny looking).
So I’ve been painting recently and made some attempts first on sketchbook to see how it looks and moved to painting on small MDF pieces. I’m still painting as I go along which I will post again when it’s done.

(I have no idea what this bird-like creature is, but I remember thinking of Dodo and rooster when I was painting it)

Highly recommend anyone to try this out, especially if you’re not good at drawing animals like me… it works out well in the end haha.
Not too sure if I’ll continue with it longer but if so, I’ve been thinking of making a series of it or somehow incorporate small pieces which fits into a large piece sorta thing……. we’ll see.
