SELKIRK MIST - BLACK BEAR
Having spent many days in the Selkirk’s through all seasons, I find autumn to be my favourite. The underbrush is alive with colour and animals are in their prime. I’m mostly a painter of grizzlies however when I look through my crayon sketches and saw this black bear, I could imagine instantly a scene such as this. I dry brushed and glazed a blue mist coming over the background which added to the mood as well as a nice reason to add blues to the dark bear itself. I was very pleased with this piece.
