Brown bear - wip


Yum-yum - working with wonderful watercolors. Its a balance to keep the paint bright and transparent, but also get darker values without getting too muddy. So I work layer-on-layer.

I paint on watercolor-canvas. This is bought ready-to-paint on, but I am also going to try to use Golden Absorbant ground, to make these canvas' myself.

The reference is one of many great shots I took of brown bears in Scandinavian Zoo some years ago.
