Postmark’dArt Round 11

Gates............with an Asian influenceMy version of Petroglyphs in the Kimberly (West Australia) areaFor Round Eleven of the Postmark’dArt swap, I chose the Themes of Petroglyphs/Rock art, and Gates as the themes I would deliver.

With the theme “Gates” I went Asian…………using photos I had taken during visits to Beijing (China) and  parts of Tokyo,Kobe (Japan)

These photos were printed on   Gesso prepared Artist’ canvas and touched up with Ink Intense water colour pencils.

I found that I did not read the  data base on Postmark’dArt correctly, and I fabricated too many “Gate themes”…

anyone want to do a swap?

With the theme of Petroglyphs/Rock Art………my thoughts turned to the north western area of Australia where I  found examples to interpret.

I felt that I would not offend any one if I stayed with basic figures rather than the mythological figures of the Dreamtime.

Using “Xtravorganza”  and Xpandpaint I  built up “hand prints” and spirit people and gave them dimension by treating them with my trusty heat

Now it’s time to tackle the themes of “Landscape in one colour way”  and “Water”, and then, maybe I can finally complete the quilting necessary to complete my “Firestorm” quilt.



  1. What a coincidence – I’ve just joined this group! Waiting now for the finalising of the themes for Round 16 … =D
