Just a Bear by Earleywine Just a Bear by Earleywine
8 x 10 charcoal on bark paper

Lately, my 13 year old daughter and I have been sitting down for half an hour every night and just sketching together. Kind of our special time, and a chance for me to give her pointers and tips on her drawings.

So this rough little sketch is the first result of that time

Great drawing! I especially love the texture of the fur.

And how great of you to spent time like this with your daughter. I wish I had learned to draw from my parents. What precious memories you're planting thus....

Thanks :)

Hopefully she will pick up things they don't teach in art school anymore, and remember them long after I am gone

Would love to see that. It is not the first time you use that kind of paper and I love your choice of subjects for it, they seem to compliment each other, adding layers and emotion.

As always, great one Pam! :clap:

Currently I am struggling with a portrait for a friend... hopefully I will be able to pull through.

Commissions are hard. Not because they are any more difficult than another drawing - it is a mental thing. You want them to be perfect. Like the bear - if it would have been a commission, I would have been stressing trying to make sure that it looked exactly like THAT bear. But it wasn't, so I was more relaxed about it. And it still looks like that bear.

What I am saying is try not to over stress about it - I know you will do an excellent portrait and they will be thrilled.

And thanks for the comment and fav too :)

I guess drawing nature relieves a lot of the pressure for being accurate... I'll give it a shot sometime soon ;)
