Here is my first bear painting I’m currently working on. Lots to get yet, but like how it’s turning out. I have never really worked on animals in water. I love working on wet fur. The key? Gray….lots of gray. I used different shades of gray throughout the piece to heighten the contrast between dry fur and wet fur. My next step is to throw in some white to create more of a contrast between background and foreground. Will post the finished piece very soon.
