Black Bear's Dinner # 39

Another of my Yellowstone sketches. The bear is feeding on a winter-killed elk carcass. I had my spotting scope mounted on my car window (it was cold outside), and I was scrunched into the back seat of our little RAV (so Dale could still photograph from the front seat). The bear stayed for days so I'd had quite a bit of practice drawing him before I tackled this.

Pelican pen and watercolor.

For more about the experience, plese visit my blog.

This awesome Elva (as all your paintings are), I can almost hear this bear crunching. Just wonderfully done. The composition is so perfect you didn't even have to say a word cuz we can read it so well!

I'm still intrigued by this painting. Perhaps it's the touches of red, but it speaks of true Nature.

Thank you both. I think this may be my favorite sketch from my trip ... partly because it was done on location and brings back all those memories, and partly because I like how it turned out.
