Tribal Snake Dreaming

A big splash of color today with the introduction of Tribal Snake Dreaming. I’ve always been intrigued by the artwork of dreamtime from the Australian aboriginal community. Their use of nature as storytellers really fits in my own beliefs. My Tribal Snake Dreaming is inspired by those sacred aboriginal mosaic like paintings. Using bold colored magic markers I wanted to eye to follow the snake downward into the bright surroundings. This is why the background is created with yellow and orange and the snake is blue and green. The optical illusion is only created by using the darker colors which trick the eye receding the subject away from you.

I had fun though the fumes from the markers nearly knocked me out. Perhaps the next one will be digital.
