I noticed that one dolphin of the group was looking more "aware" than the other, so I decided to see how she will do with painting. I've seen a LOT of facilities where doing this already, so nothing was really new at first. That's why I wanted to push the experience further, to see if this dolphin could be aware of what she was doing, instead of just holding a pencil, and having someone moving the sheet, like I noticed in some other facility. In my case, the frame is stable on a platform and I'm not holding it or touching it. Also, the dolphin is outside as well and stable, so what she wanted to do is also not influenced by the movement of the water.

As you can see, the video speaks by itself, and I was quite pleased by the results. This dolphin was so enjoying it at the end, than even sometimes she was doing it without any primary reinforcement. Look correctly at the video, you can actually see her looking at what she did between each time she draw. :)
