Yellow, pink, white, light brown. What comes to mind when you combine these colors? I got excited about painting this little bear. Her sweetness was captured with the initial line drawing. I like to do these sketches before I start painting. I also like to decide on the colors I'll use before the first brush load of paint touches the panel. With "Daisy" I applied the light chestnut brown first then added the darker shades defining her eyes, nose, mouth and ears. We don't want to see a flat bear, so I changed the value, the relative lightness and darkness of the brown which created her roundness and cuddliness.
Then I painted her eyes and nose and began to add color to her flower headband. I began with a striped pattern in the background. You'll see later in the painting I changed my mind. The stripes were distracting. The pretty yellow background brought in a softness and gentleness. Her face is now the focal point. As I finished painting I make sure to paint the bear paw and my signature. The result... sweet "Daisy."
