Dot art

We couldn't study Australia without doing some Aboriginal/indigenous Australian dot art. We started by getting on line and looking at some examples and then I printed out the symbols and their meanings from one of the many sites we looked at, sorry I don't remember which one. We got out the acrylic paints and cotton buds and I found some wood (actually unused shelves). Ebi-kun wanted to paint an kangaroo, so I helped by sketching the shape for him to start with.
We both agreed it was very relaxing doing this type of painting and I am sure we will be doing it again sometime soon. Here is Ebi-kuns kangaroo....
and of course, I had to have a go too, so here is my platypus....
