I tried to draw a variety of things today — a cartoon like angel (only did part of her head) and some lettering practice for journaling. None of it looked particularly good. Then I remembered that I had wanted to try to draw three brown bear cubs that I’d found in my Sierra Club calendar. The photo I used was taken by Patrick J. Endres. They looked better before I added the colored pencil. I wish now that I had gone over them in black ink and then attempted to water-color them. Maybe another time. Really, the only thing I feel that I got pretty much right in this little drawing is the first (skinny looking bear on the left) bears face. I like his little face. The poor bear on the right needs some help. He looks like a cross between a koala and a science experiment. Still, I’ve never attempted to draw bears before and I’ll learn from it, I’m sure. So, it was a success, no matter how it looks.
I’ll have a mail post for you tomorrow.
