Hello friends, Welcome back!! Today am sharing with you all dot painting/ aboriginal art on canvas inspired from pinterest. 

This art work consisting of dots ,  cross hatching , maps of circles , spirals is the long established language of Western desert aboriginal people. The dot technique gives the painting an almost 3D effect and a sense of movement . To know more about the history of this art click here

I got inspired by Rachelsaunders work and followed her style. I used 16cm*10cm canvas and folkart acrylic paints. The interesting thing about this work is that it can be done using simple household objects and doesn't call for artist brushes. For the big dots I used the backside of my parker pen , for the medium and small dots I used backside of my brush and toothpick respectively.

This is indeed a very relaxing and therapeutic art. It helped me to overcome my stress of motherhood and sleepless nights. Thanks for stopping by. See you with another interesting post. Have a great week ahead!!
