Daily Bear – My March Drawing Challenge

These are the faces I drew for February. I drew a face every day!

Well, actually I colored a face every day.

You may recognize them from my quilt patterns. ๐Ÿ™‚

In January I learned how to use some of the painting tools in the Procreate app on my iPad. (You can see all the results here.)

In February I wanted to apply those new skills by coloring something besides dots. ๐Ÿ™‚

Now I’m really going to push myself.

I’m drawing a bear every day this month!

Not just any bears. I’ve drawn a bunch of bears. I have a quilt pattern called Bunches of Bears!

But they’re all kind of neutral, smiling bears. They’re definitely cute and I love them – but this month I’m going to push myself to draw bears with more distinct personalities – and especially with a wider variety of emotions.

I want to draw happy bears for sure. But I also want to draw curious bears, and surprised bears, and anxious bears, and snooty bears, and goofy bears, and grumpy bears, and more.

I’m starting with a grumpy bear. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love him!

You can follow my progress on Instagram where I’ll be posting a bear every day. ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great month!

Best,
Wendi

    I love, love, LOVE this idea, Wendi! I can see it being used with little ones (or even bigger kids!) who have a hard time identifying their emotiome. โ€œWhich bear are you right now?โ€

    I would love to buy the pattern for the expressive bears. It would be great quilt for kids that have difficulty expressing how they are feeling.

    • Thanks! I probably won’t offer it as a separate pattern (I already have TWO bear quilt patterns) but I think I may replace some of the bears in the Bunches of Bears pattern and update it. Stay tuned!
