Upon surprising a kangaroo mumma with her joey

I love to take a late afternoon walk in Shepherd’s Bush Reserve which is near my house.

One day when I was walking along, the late afternoon sun was shining through the gum trees making me feel pleasantly meditative.

Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted a slight movement.

I glanced up to see this beautiful mother kangaroo illuminated against the setting sun..

This drawing is an example of a happy accident. We were meant to bring acrylic paint to the class but I misunderstood so I had to use whatever I could. With nothing to loose, I splashed the background colours with happy abandon.

When I’d finished, it seemed the perfect backdrop for my kangaroo, which is done with pastels.
