Reptiles in the Bark Series

The Reptiles in the Bark Series is inspired by observational reptile drawings from my year two art students. I like to draw their drawings. It helps me to understand how they think when they draw. I then reinterpret the drawings to make them more of my own. To start the artworks I will prepare the surface using either collage or acrylic paint, or a combination of both. I transfer my design to the surface and block out the background to reveal the shapes and colours. Details are added using Indian Ink.
