Hello.

(SNORES)

Huh?

Look.

(LAUGHS) Yeah.

Hmm.

Oh, oh, oh.

Huh?

Look.

Ah.

I'm Sally.

And I'm Possum.

Hello.

Hello.

Hello, everyone.

I was just playing some cricket.

It was so much fun.

And before that,

I was watering the garden.

It was great.

I was playing some soccer too

and I kicked a great goal.

Hmm, what should I do now, though?

Something different.

Why don't I draw?

(LAUGHS)

Hmm, what should I draw, though?

(GASPS) My tree!

(CHUCKLES)

Hmm. Yeah, that's great.

What shall I draw next?

Oh, the bench!

Oh, yeah.

Hmm.

Yep. Right there.

(LAUGHS) Great!

What else?

(GASPS)

I could draw a picture

of Sally's face.

(LAUGHS) Yeah!

Hmm.

Hello.

Hello. (LAUGHS)

Hello.

Hello.

Hi, everyone.

Hi, everyone.

Sally, your hair looks beautiful.

Oh, thank you.

What were you doing outside, Possum?

Oh, the usual -

just playing some soccer.

Um, watering the garden.

And playing some cricket.

And I did something new.

Oh, what did you do?

I was drawing.

Oh, drawing,

that's a wonderful thing.

Sally, I really like drawing, but

I'm not sure why I enjoy it so much.

Well, drawing is

a very important thing

for many different reasons.

It's good to look at something

and then to draw it.

Or paint it.

And to draw the same thing

as you've seen

helps you remember

what it really looks like.

Hmm.

Also, you have feelings

when it comes to certain things,

and if you draw or paint about them,

then what you've drawn or painted

can show how you are feeling.

Oh.

I know, Sally, I have an idea.

What?

I want to draw you!

Me?

Yes, I'd love to draw your face.

Oh, that's funny, Possum.

I guess it's lucky

that I've just brushed my hair.

Yeah.

Sally, when you were

brushing your hair,

you were looking in the mirror.

Can you brush your hair

without the mirror?

Oh, yes, I can,

but you know my hair is very curly,

and if I didn't have

the mirror there,

I might miss some parts and

it wouldn't be very neat and tidy.

So I've got the mirror there

so I can see what I'm doing.

Right.

What were you drawing outside?

Look!

Oh, that's beautiful.

That's my tree.

Oh, yes, I can see that's your tree.

But...there's no door.

Oh, you're right.

And I can see the cricket ball

and the branches.

Do they look like the ones

on your tree?

Hmm.

Hmm.

What else did you draw, Possum?

Look.

Oh, that's the bench.

(LAUGHS) And I can see

the soccer ball.

Hmm.

Oh, the ball's a bit big, isn't it?

Yes, it's very big, isn't it?

And the chair isn't straight, is it?

There's no way I could sit on it.

I'd slide off!

You're always very careful

when you draw things,

but today is different, though.

I think you need to practise

a bit more.

You have to carefully draw

what you're seeing,

especially before you draw my face.

If you don't practise, you might

draw me with a very, very big nose,

and I might look like a football!

(BOTH LAUGH)

Oh, that's funny!

Yeah.

I think it's important

that you do practise.

Maybe you could draw

your own face first?

OK.

Can you go get the easel?

Oh, yep.

Great.

(HUMS TUNE)

Here's good. Hmm.

Right.

Great.

Now...hmm...hmm...right.

Aha.

Great.

Ah!

Good.

And...hmm.

Hmm.

Ah, oh, this one, yes.

Oh, and another one.

My nose.

My mouth.

And...

Done! All done.

Great, that's lovely, Possum,

it's really nice.

You know how I was brushing my hair

earlier?

Mm-hm.

How did I know if my hair was

neat and tidy and not all messy?

How could I tell?

Hmm - the mirror!

You were using the mirror.

Yes, that's right,

I could see my reflection.

Maybe if you looked in the mirror,

you'd be able to draw

your reflection too.

Shall we get the mirror?

Oh, yeah!

Let's go.

Right.

Sally, I'm ready.

Well, what you need to remember

is to get your features

in the right place on your face

and try to make them

the right size too.

You have to be very careful.

Now, feel your ears and have a look

at the size of them.

Are they the same?

And then look at your picture.

OK.

Hmm. Now.

Oh.

Oh!

Sally, it's wrong,

I've got one big ear

and one small ear

and my eyes aren't straight either!

It was a really good try, Possum.

Would you like to try drawing

your picture one more time?

You must look in the mirror

and then draw what you see

and make sure you get

everything in the right place, OK?

Let's go.

OK.

Right. My face.

My ears.

My eyes.

Oh, nose.

Big smile.

Ooh!

Hmm. Ah...

Ooh.

Great! Finished.

Oh, that was great.

You were so careful.

You looked hard in the mirror

and then worked out

where to draw your lines.

It looks great, Possum.

Artists can have very different ways

to draw a picture

but they're all very careful

about where they draw their lines.

Even when they're painting,

they're always very careful

with their brush strokes.

Oh.

Uh, great.

I really enjoy watching artists

drawing or painting their pictures.

Oh, that has given me an idea.

Why don't we watch some children

watching an artist paint a picture?

Yeah, let's watch!

Where is Possum?

He's up the tree.

The moon will rise.

Oh!

Oh, wow!

Wasn't he an amazing painter?

The way he painted that possum

was brilliant.

I've learned so much from him.

Yeah, he was great

at painting those trees

and I agree,

that was a great-looking possum.

Yes, that man was brilliant

at using paint.

Yeah. Sally, I need to practise

my drawing more.

Before, I got too excited and rushed

and it didn't look right.

That's right, and I also need

to practise too, Possum.

There's an apple in that basket.

I'm going to draw that.

I'm going to copy it very carefully

and draw it on to a piece of paper.

I'm going to make sure it looks

round like the apple, and not flat.

Oh, that's a great idea, Sally.

I'm going to practise too.

I'm going to go outside and when

I've finished my beautiful drawing,

I'm going to come back in

and then draw your face.

(LAUGHS)

Great!

Ready?

Ready, let's go.

Come on.

(LAUGHS)

Right.

Hmm.

Now...

Mmm. Mm-hm.

Mm-hm.

Yep.

Uh-huh.

Ah.

Ooh, it's beautiful.

Looks great.

(LAUGHS)

Watch this.

Possum, did you like my drawing

of the apple?

Oh, yes, it was delicious.

No, you mean it LOOKS delicious.

No, no, no, it WAS delicious.

Yum, yum, yum.

Oh, OK.

Oh! Oh, Possum, you are teasing me.

Ta-da!

Oh, you have taken bites

out of your apple.

That looks fantastic.

What a great drawing.

You have improved so much.

I think you are ready

to draw me now.

Oh, yes!

Now, OK, stand over there.

Hmm. Mm-hm.

I've had two cups of tea

and two glasses of water

and I'm still waiting.

He really must be being very careful

with his drawing.

Hmm. Mm-hm.

Great.

Sally, I think I'm finished.

There's a little bit more polishing

to do, but I can do that later.

Can I show you?

Oh, yes, please.

Great!

Oh, I wonder what it looks like?

Look.

Oh, me - wow!

Does that look like me?

Yes! (LAUGHS)

Oh, wow, Possum,

this is just brilliant.

What a great drawing.

We have learned so much today

about drawing, haven't we?

Well, our time is up.

Thanks for watching.

See you next time.

Bye.

Bye.

Does it look like me? Eyes, hair?

Yes, looks the same.

Possum draws a picture of Sally

Hmm. Possum loves to draw, but is he really looking carefully at what he is drawing? Wait till you see how much better he gets when he learns to look for details.
