Continuining to develop style and technique to bring my drawings to canvas this is my next painting. It’s a version of my (very popular) drawing My First Polar Bear.
This is the deep edge 8″x8″ (20cm x 20xm) canvas on my easel after the intial drawing has gone on in ink using a Copic Brush Pen.
The drawing stage went a bit wrong so I started to use titanium white acrylic to cover the bad lines. In the process I learnt a valuable lesson – leave the ink overnight to dry completely! So there’s some muddy parts where the cover up mixed with the ink (hence a grey nose!).
I’ve finished the painting today and he looks much more refined but I haven’t photos to show you yet, so I’m posting this to give you a taste of what to expect. I now know the painting is called Two Paws and Claws.
PS: There is some debate in our house as to what this polar bear’s name is. I think it’s Pete but Mr Creative has other ideas.
