Welcome to this weekends challenge – toys! Bears feature quite heavily and I think that would be a lovely challenge on its own for later in the year. However here our beautiful cuddly bears mixed with some lovely toy drawings and paintings. I hope that everyone loves viewing them as much as we have.

Special mention to student Katja Felbel who’s acrylic painting of lego people is simply stunning! We are certain that our students will be very impressed with Katja’s artwork! Inspirational!

Congratulations to all students that took part and stay tuned for the next challenge coming soon!

The favourite toys of my boys is Lego. They love to play and make great constructions with it. I am always fascinated what can comes out with those stones. To me (and to my kids) it is one of the brilliant toys. I decided to paint some figures of them. The painting is made with Acrylic colours.

For inspiration I used my own picture with a big teddy bear. While drawing myself as a little girl – it turned out looking like an illustration for a children’s book. Well, maybe I should write one!

A bit of a departure from my Botanical Painting Course, but I love this little bear so much I just had to include him!

I chose pull-along toys for my painting since it brings up memories of my kids learning to walk. They were encouraged to take their first steps. It was really cute to see them walk with their toys.
