Stage 3 of Whittlesea Straw Bear Painting


Finally completed this 'Whittlesea Straw Bear Festival' painting.

I will donate a percentage of profits from the sale of each limited edition print sold to the Straw Bear Festival,click here to take you to the order page for more details.

I included a few late editions to the painting as I saw it only fit to include include Brian Kell BEM the founder and organiser of the festival and my two daughters on the far right who I've been meaning to paint for many years now!

Stage 2 of Whittlesea Straw Bear Painting


Not sure why I selected to paint a picture with so many people in, I must like making hard work for myself. I've not painted the penny its just to show viewer how small I've painted all these heads.

Stage 1 of Whittlesea Straw Bear Painting


I did a painting of Whittlesea Straw Bear many years ago now and feel I could now do a much better job, so here is the start to my new Straw Bear painting.

I wanted to include the Whittlesey Buttercross as a back drop to this one which you can see I have painted already. Next stage will be to paint the busy foreground which will include Bears, band members, dancers and spectators. Painting size around 16"x12". Working a bit different to how I normally paint as I'm using a mid tone paper instead on white board.
