Doreen, your drawing of the Koala is simply brilliant. Stunning detail all over. The detail in the fur is incredible. You must be very proud of this and I can see there would have been many hours of fine detailed work there. Your drawing looks like a high quality photo and I too love that touch of green as well.
You are an extremely talented artist, congratulations and well done on a very fine work of Art.
