The Real Boat

A paper boat sailing happily around a pond is challenged by the frogs and ducks as to whether he is a real boat. So he sets off along a little stream towards the ocean to discover if he can live up to the name. His journey is long and arduous and along the way he encounters many kinds of boats and ships. The mixed media illustrations focus around a blue-green colour palette encouraging exploration of art techniques as well as the world of watercraft.
