Animals, Big Ted by Margaret Coote

Since "stuffed" animals were part of this theme, I thought I'd draw my trusty teddy bear, with me now for over 3 decades. After a few minutes, though, I felt I wasn't doing him justice and got frustrated…but I thought I should post this anyway, since I'd done it, and it's not his fault that I didn't complete it!

PS There is a "Little Ted", but "Big Ted" got his name before she came along, not sure how or why...

  1. Oh, he looks so cute! You should have finished him. What were you sketching with? It sort of looks like a conte crayon or a watercolor pencil. I sketched one of my "stuffed" animals too.

  3. Thanks Joan and Gloria! Yes we definitely do love our teddy bears :) I've had him since I was about 4. It's actually Neocolor water-soluble crayon, but you're right, it looks like Conte crayon here. I didn't use any water on it.

  4. Lovely the way he is emerging on to the page from the white background. There is something so special and eye-catching about unfinished sketches, and I have a great love of them. Big Ted is certainly added to my mental storehouse of lovely unfinished pieces.
