Art Bear in Graphite

This is a stuffed bear that I found back in 1996 at an Art Store.  He stands about 10" to a foot, holding a palette and brush.  For the longest time I thought I had lost him in one of our moves until I came across him in a tote buried back in one of my closets.  I was actually looking for something else when I came across the tote and him tucked inside.

Worked in the Handbook with mechanical pencil.  Sketched while listening to TV.  Still trying to keep things "sketchy" looking by working quickly and loosely.  I was in the mood for graphite only but decided to add the watercolor background to help make him come forward.

The bear is so cute!! And your sketch of him is wonderful! I mainly work in graphite but lately I am wanting to add color to my sketches. I love your idea of adding a watercolor background. It really makes the bear stand out!

Thank you, Giddings Art :-) I wasn't sure how it would turn out but I like the contrast with the colored background. I might have to try this again. Appreciate your comment!
