Tender moment

I have reached the focalpoint of the composition. The 2 bears tender moment.

I still need quite a lot of fur, but its fun to paint the thick, rough bear-fur.

Tender moment

I am glad I have time to work on this.
I have started the fur of the bears back. I did fear this area (and certainly there are still a challenge down the shoulder).

Tender moment

To paint the bears fur is a challenge of making it look thick and rough. It takes time with colored pencil, but the colored support makes it easier than if working on white paper.

I have thought of a title since I started this (I often have a title from scratch). I just came up with it an early morning: "Tender moment".

As the drawing develops, you'll better understand the title.

Tender moment

I have been playing around with polymer-clay in my sparetime, but now it is time for drawing and painting again.
I have a composition with 2 bears, and here are my progress so far. The materials are colored pencils on Canson Mi-Tentes.

I love this

Starting january 2011, I'll make a montly post with a couple of "I love this" drawings or paintings.

Why not applaude something you really admire and love to look at :) Enjoy!

As I cannot copy-paste other artists work, I have placed a link on the title.

"Perseverance" Acrylic wolfpainting by Cristina Penescu.
I think this is a masterpiece. The composition, the light, the background, the mood, the texture and colors. Just everything works brilliant. The motif drags you in, and you cannot get tired of looking at that gorgeous animal. 24 x 36 inches - I would love to see this in Reallife too. Must blow you away.

"The Horse whisperer". Pencildrawing by Terry Miller
What a masterful drawing. The light and shadow-play are fantastic. Beside the superior drawingskills the drawing has a fantastic mood and tells a moving story. It just hit your feelings and emphaty for the horses. I love the title too. 8 x 17 inches.
