Description:

Inspired by Australian Aboriginal art - my entry for the Australian Fauna contest are my Platypuses.

According to Aboriginal Dreamtime legend, the first platypus was born after an attractive young female duck mated with a lonely and persuasive water-rat. The duck's offspring had their mother's bill and webbed feet and their father's legs and handsome brown fur. © 2013 Shelley Aakjaer

fireflower says: I love your use of the Aboriginal "dotted" style, a style that I have admired for ages. These colors are very pleasant, too, the coolness of the water, and the warmness of the fur really come through. Good luck in the contest!
