Teddy Bear With Rainy Window
Simple and Popular Teddy Bear Plus Rainy Window and Wood
Teddy Bears are a simple shape that beginners find easy to manage, while experts can dazzle you with them. Adding a rainy window gives practice in wet on wet watercolor with no right or wrong for a unique effect that is quick to paint and compliments the realism of the bear.
In this course you'll see a follow along video showing every step in painting the above teddy.
Colors used: cobalt blue, ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, lemon or hansa yellow, and a touch of red for the ribbon.
Masking tape is used to create the straight lines of the windows, and a fan brush was used to suggest wood detail, but is optional.

I'm a self taught artist and I love teaching!
My story is simple.
I showed a lot of interest and talent as a child, but my parents discouraged art as a waste of time. I spent my adult life as a nurse and raised a family - pretty busy. While I was home with the birth of my daughter, I bought a cheap set of watercolors and fell in love with the bloom of color. I told my husband, 'I'm going to keep painting with these until I get really good.'
Back then, not many painted realistic watercolors, so I practiced and tried things until I worked out my own style. It took a lot of trial and error,
. When I entered my first art show, I won two awards and was told I'd have to enter the professional category and not beginner. That frightened me soo much, I didn't enter again for years.
When my work began selling, I entered more shows with more great success. I worked very hard and became a full time professional artist and teacher.
Although my work has been recognized and featured in major exhibitions, books and magazines, I'm very down to earth, and just love painting.
No one has 'all the time in the world'. Paint now. You're never too old, it's never too late. Any bit of time you can practice will improve your skills.
And yes, this cowboy is a watercolor painting. (Reference photo used with permission by Diana Robinson)
