They didn’t all scan very well unfortunately maybe they were too pale but in person they look ok. It shows up my wrinkly pages nicely.

They were all drawn with a pencil and painted with watercolour.

I used a brush pen for these polar bears and filled in a few shadows with ultramarine blue watercolour
