A while back I posted a few drawings inspired by the dot painting of Australian aboriginal artists. I couldn’t get the concept of using dots to help structure an image out of my mind. I was so taken with the idea of those drawings that I decided to do two more. What are the animals most commonly associated with Australia? Of course, Kangaroos and Koalas. Well, I had to add those to my culturally derived menagerie. And here they are.
As with the earlier drawings, these were done on an iPad using Procreate app. They were created on multiple layers. Various colors and textures were built up in the background and the animal shapes were overlaid with layers of dot applications.
