Artist's Description

Warm White Gouache (not acrylic) on black design paper. 30cm x 30.5cm

The task I set my students was to use a lizard or lizards and incorporate it with pattern. I wanted to push them out of their comfort zone and make them think. I set up the centre of the table with lots of objects that could be used as patterns and lots of photos of lizards and geckos.

The above painting is the one I did after class was finished using the same concept and testing for one student that the gouache would work on the black paper and her design would be able to be transfered successfully. I had been out in the bush taking photos of the wildflowers and decided to use the cowslip orchid in my design.
Below is a sample of one of the cowslip photos I took last week and used in this design.
