Advice on pickup bar in 12/8

I have a pickup bar with a dotted minim in 12/8, which is tied to the next note in the “first” bar - a semi-breve.

Is it correct to notate this as pickup bar with just that dotted note?
Thanks all.

That would be fine. The meter and the note value explain themselves.

Yes. Correct as far as I am concerned.

Thanks @Mark_Johnson @reberclark - for some reason it just looked a bit odd.
