Identity's Interloper by syringe-love Identity's Interloper by syringe-love
This is another oil painting completed recently. I found this little guy in my unit on the west coast of Australia. Pretty sure he's a Northern Spiny-Tailed Gecko, although I've seen transparent kind of versions of this species too.

Oil on Canvas.
40 x 60cm.

Thankyou, didn't take that long, the background is done with a palette knife so really quick oil application. I worked on this over a couple of days I think.

Yeah, they're pretty adorable, really slow moving, docile things, I had a tomatoe plant and I saw her munching on a cherry tomatoe, heaps dumb.

Ha ha, the zoo! I had a couple (male and female) in my backyard at one stage, they are pretty funny lazy lizards. Big Goanna's are heaps more impressive though, like dinosaurs.

Awesome! I love geckos. This is very unique looking.

Last time I attempted to hold a gecko it bit me, though. ;-;

These little ones are pretty harmless and soft, I've seen skinks bite before. This breed is South-west spiny-tailed gecko (Strophurus spinigerus), I think. They sometimes go partially transparent, but I think that is when they are sick. I would always find them inside in my place in Western Australia.

No not too long, the painting is quite small, the background is done using a palette knife and just moving the paint around until it sits nicely. The hand and lizard took a bit more time, but in truth is was quite a quick painting.
