Ready to post round two.

**I am by no means an Aboriginal Artist**
I wanted Melissa's wee turtle to meet an Aussie relative.
So my Inspiration for this drawing comes from an "Original" painting
by Gerry Surha, a genuine Aboriginal artist from Atherton, Far North Queensland.
His paintings are SENSATIONAL.
Wee Turtle needed a parachute to land safely, I'm hoping you don't mind
the addition to your drawing Melissa?
Unfortunately my colours did not come up as bright in these photographs.
They are much nicer in reality.

PS: It is so soothing drawing all those dots, my eyes kept
getting tired and I actually fell asleep a couple of times.

Oh my goodness. I love it, I love it I love it. I just started clapping. Clare thank you so much for putting your full heart into my book.

Ok. I've calmed down a bit. Now the questions. Is the blue background marker or a separate piece of paper?

It is all done with black zig pen, Prismacolor pencil and the white dots are Uni paint marker,(I couldn't get any thing else to be bright enough over the blue pencil.
I am so pleased you like it.

I have noted the details on the back of my drawing. Prismacolour pencils are my favourites. They go on so smooth and creamy and when I rub over my drawing with my finger it becomes glossy and reminds me of enamel.

Great artwork....I love the bright colours..I shall be trying out the prismacolours they sound great.

Just read your comment about how soothing it was making the dots. When I used to do this as a project with my younger students, we would use q-tips and paint. And they would just zone out. Cute.

It looks great Clare!

Very cool. The sea turtle looks like it was created with seeds, lentils. Looks like crop art.
