Acrylic paint on a polyester stretched canvas with some texture

Description

An original painting
I did not set out to paint in this naive or primitive style..it just happened as
I added more and more paint and just enjoyed the painting journey
this painting used a lot of paint ! and has texture in some places , which adds to it's appeal
this painting is purely from my imagination
but was very surprised after working on this painting for a whole week
and watching it develop
how primitive and simple and beautiful was the end result..I was very happy with it
and amazed myself with what emerged.. i have painted birds around the water lilly ponds
and have painted some iconic Australian animals such as the kangaroo, lizard and dingo.. also the sulphur crested cockatoos flock to a white ghost gum..all these scenes I saw as I was growing up in the top end of Australia and retained, though fleetingly in my memory ..... enjoy!
