Vanilla Polar Bear

Meet my polar bear with his seal chums! As the title may suggest, I still feel I’m making vanilla work, nothing too amazing, which is disappointing for me. I’m in my comfort zone with watercolours, soft bright colours with not a lot of contrast and a lacking of something-something.

Nothing practice won’t sort out though I hope, I’m going to push in some contrast with more ink in my next illustration, with a touch of pastel maybe to give it a kick! I made this illustration with coffee, watercolour, ink and white pigment and I experimented with drawing gum to make the bubbles!
