Beautiful acrylic painting of a Platypus A Creature of Dreams. Vibrant textured colour has been applies with palette knife and stencil to represent the fur of of this amazing creature. This painting will bring the the sounds still billabong waters and splashing sounds amid the Australian bush right into the room with you to brighten up your day.
It was fun creating the swirling underwater background for this painting. I painted the Platypus because they are endangered as well as being extremely unusual creatures and rarely seen.
Please read my poem for the best description of these amazing marsupials. Platypus A Creature of Dreams
Original Artwork Creation Process
Many hours go into creating an original painting.
- The canvas is stretched
- Canvas is primed
- Design is created from photos which have been taken.
- Plan is developed so that there is a logical step by step from background painting to finished painting.
- Design is sketched onto the canvas before painting and the application of texture paste using stencils and/or palette knives is performed.
- Many layers of painting plus a final coat protective varnish are all done with love and care.
