I drew and painted this pretty colourful toucan using acrylic paints on a canvas. I learnt and used a technique called pointillism at my school. Our topic was rainforest and I chose to create Pointy Toucan because of its bright and pretty colours. I used a cotton bud dipped in paint and painted dots in a pattern to form the shape of the toucan's head and beak.
