Daddy Coconut Head

Billy, Age 6

  • Drawing
  • Pencil and pastel
  • A4 portrait

I drew this picture because a coconut inspired me to draw my dad’s head as hairy as the coconut is. My dad is very, very hairy and he has fluff in his bellybutton. I used pastels to colour the picture in and, when I used them, it felt very dusty on my hands. There was a bit of pastel dust on the legs and the laces so I swiped down and it coloured in the shoes.
