Polar Bear

Oil on 8" canvas

Painting bears is always exciting. I've seen many black bears in the wild, here in northern California, and I've glimpsed a Grizzly in Montana. I've even see a polar bear, but that was at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. For this painting I used a high key palette which is kind of unusual for me because I like using black a lot. The high key palette is a feel good palette and works well for that soft dreamy quality.
