Another polar bear! I rarely do a wash over an entire painting but I thought I'd give it a go with this one.

International Polar Bear Day!

SOLD

It's International Polar Bear Day, so I thought I'd paint this little cutie this morning. He's saying "who me... my day?!"

early on

SOLD

I've been going through a new animal drawing book by Glenn Vilppu. He's a wonderful draftsman and the book inspired me to paint this early morning black bear, wandering out to start his day. I used a photo from the wonderful website WetCanvas' reference photo library.

arrive

SOLD

I recently rediscovered a wonderful colour called Magenta. I say rediscovered because, I had it on my palette years ago and replaced it somewhere along the road. My palette is always changing and putting this lovely purple back into the picture is, so far, great! : )

orange delight

$100 - 8x10"watercolour painting
My goal while painting this one was to add a few background items to enhance, but not overpower, these orange beauties. : )
a few close ups...
