A detailed pencil drawing of a polar bear using prismacolour pencils and some tinted graphite on Strathmore Toned Tan acid free paper.
The toned paper allows many layers of lighter coloured pencil to create the soft texture of the animal's fur.
I have attached a work in progress photo to show how this work developed.
