The Polar Bear Plunge

A local lake has an annual, “Polar Bear Plunge” on New Year’s Day.  Too cold for me to plunge into that freezing cold water…

So I decided to take a different approach with a warm-up blind contour drawing of a polar bear wearing a bikini… hehe!


Before I dived in with this one and added some handmade stenciled snowflakes in my art journal…


Hope it gives you a smile today!  🙂

  3. Oh so cute. I have two polar pear figures I sometimes use for drawing. Usually in the dead of winter. I have not thought to dress them. These are so good. My husband also smiled when he saw what I was smiling at.

    • Hi Carmel! Blind contour drawings are so fun! That is cool that you often draw from polar bears. There was a photo in our local newspaper of a gal wearing a bikini taking the polar bear plunge so it gave me the idea! Glad I could give you and your hubby a smile today! 😃❄️
