Brown Bear

"Brown Bear"
oil on board, 8" x 8"
I'm currently working on a really large commission which should be done in about a week or so, but in the mean time, I'm going to fit in a few smaller works. I had the idea of using 3 brushes and 4 colors for this but ended up using 6 brushes. The colors were raw umber, phthalo blue, burnt sienna and titanium white. It could have been black and white but I loved the subtle brown and green shades this creates. She is a grizzly bear at the Woodland Park Zoo and I just loved this shot of her resting in her cave area. What an incredible creature!
