High in the Treetops
Pastels and coloured pencils were the perfect medium for this drawing. I wanted to highlight the rich azure blue of the sky and the vivid colours of the leaves and trees to capture this perfect day of a koala living in its natural and unspoiled habitat in Forster, NSW. My neighbour took a photo of this adorable koala while on holiday.
Like most of the east coast of Australia, koalas in Forster on the NSW mid-coast are rapidly declining, especially after the devastating fires of 2019/20.
