New Zealands’ Dinosaur !

Oct 10

The Tuatara is not a lizard as such – it is the last survivor of a group of beasts whose golden age was with that of the dinosaurs , 200 Million years ago.  Which makes it very interesting to those who study evolution.    It is also quite handsome , here is one that i prepared earlier  ….. i have also found a new love for French Ultramarine blue and violet.

My pretty patterned elephant friend here seemed to be the crowd favourite at Pixel Ink gallery opening night.  I love him, he was great fun to work on while trapped inside during the freak Wellington snow attack !    I actually used some sandpaper and a kitchen scrubber to get extra texture .

On show for another 5 weeks at Pixel Ink Gallery, Cuba Street , Wellington…
