shine bright bear print

after many long but, very joyful days of creating,
i finally am able to start showing you
some of the pieces I have been working on.

this piece is part of a series i created called
"shine bright!"

and yes the print will soon be available in my etsy shop.

here is a peek at a bit of my process.

remember the wrinkled paper that happened
and I had to start over.

my pencil illustration base.
(i love how the light from the sun setting
is casting shadows on the illustration) 

a wash with watercolor and
the beginnings of the layering of pencil crayons.

and finally this little happy one!

stop by again soon as i will be posting more on this series.
