Watercolor Practice: Teddy Bears

For this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge, “Monochromatic,” I would like to share a piece of artwork I have created a month ago, with which I utilized said technique. In painting, the monochromatic color scheme uses variations in lightness and saturation of a single color. Using only the composite color brown (produced by mixing red, yellow, and black pigments), I was able to recreate a picture of my beloved teddy bears, Bubut, Shiro, and Choco Teddy!  Complementary colors blue and orange were also added as accents. 🙂


Below is the step-by-step process 🙂


This post is special to me because it’s a fusion of two things I love: teddy bears and painting! Next to flowers, teddy bears are my favorite subject to paint 😉


Below is the original picture from which I copied my painting 🙂

Here are other noteworthy entries: scenery in Japan, nature spots in Indonesia, this green forest, this blue sky kissing the ocean, this beautiful street girl, the delicate pink petals of an English rose, the green leaves of this plant, and these serene and soothing set of photos!


I’d love to hear from you! 🙂 Reach me via Instagram (@chasingthestarsblog), by sending me an email at, or through Facebook!
