Bear Sketch

Following Sandy on sketchingeveryday.com, I did this quick sketch of a bear.

Most of the sketch was holding my pencil parallel using the side of the lead to make my marks.  Then for added detail I used the point.

I love this Susan! Great technique with this pencil. I've been drawing bears the past few days too and will post this on my blog next time! I am holding my pencil like a wand more and more. My strokes feel free and more painterly this way. Do you agree? Thanks for the mention!

Thanks Sandy :-D I'm looking forward to more of your bear sketches!!! And I agree about how it feels plus the results holding the pencil parallel to paper. It was through examples you have shared in past that I started doing that ;-)
