Teddy Bear Sketch...

It seems that those bears are calling me again...
I know it hasn't been long since I completed the first series, but I have missed those cute, furry faces!

These little fellows sit on my studio shelf and were never used in my paintings. 
I found myself on a little guilt trip, so decided that at the very least, I should sketch them :0)



I might have evolved it into a painting, but the next series will feature miniature bears, so if I do paint these chaps, it won't be for some time.
For now, I have teeny bears in all sorts of scenarios in my head, just waiting to come out on canvas.
I'm excited already!

In other news:
 My website is almost complete aside from the Paypal buttons. These should be up and operational within the next week or so and of course I will add more artwork as I go. 

And to celebrate it's official launch, I'll be doing a 
'Limited Edition Teddy Bear Print Giveaway!!!'

So, if you would like to own any one of the eight bears in the first series of Limited Edition Bear Prints, then watch this space because I'll soon be telling you how :0)

      It's taken me a few years to get around to it, lol! But I got the kick up the bum that I needed and it's slowly coming together now. Can't wait until I can concentrate more on the painting! :0)

  10. Bonsoir ma chère amie,
    J'aime tellement vos ours ! Comment ne pas les aimer d'ailleurs !... Vous avez une manière bien à vous de les animer sur le papier !
    Leurs attitudes et leurs regards les rendent très attendrissants.
    Un travail merveilleux.
    Gros bisous
