Rain, rain go away...

The weather this weekend is horrible!  Just awful!  I have managed to finish sticking together all my Christmas cards which is great though!  This has been a good way of filling in the dark evenings.  Here is a batch of them, I know Polar Bears are solitary creatures, but is there a proper name for a group of them I wonder?

Here is also another picture I did of a polar bear, while coming up with ideas.  I have really enjoyed drawing them but feel a real urge now to get back on with some drawing from life again.  Today I set myself up a small still life and managed to work on it for a couple of hours, but the light has gone so quickly today I have had to abandon it half finished.  I won't be able to work on it now until Thursday, but I will definitely complete it.  The lack of decent daylight at this time of year is so frustrating.  I really want to get outside and do some drawing, but the weather just spoils everything! 


  1. I love the polar bears! Good for you for making your Christmas cards! I keep telling myself that every year I will do that. I still have time right? It looks like your teapot is off to a good start too! -- Trish Roque

  2. Daylight here is fleeting as well. I am also looking to get out and sketch. I love polar bears! I can't wait to see more of your work.

  3. The polar bear looks real, especially the sketch of the head. Nice blog!

  4. Love your coffee pot and the polar bear. Great art.

  5. Lovely polar bears! I just love the creatures. I used them for my Christmas crd last year!

  6. Polar bears are inclined to be unsociable but if not , a group is a "celebration" or possible a "herd" . Mind you wikipedia says a herd but it also says they are called polo bears which may be an entirely different animal !
