I took the photo references I used for these paintings the same sunny day as the moose painting I did last week. Again it was fun to paint animals that I got to observe from life for a while. When I go back next time I hope to have more time to sketch from life, and then work from photos and sketches.

...these are amazing, Kristin! I lvoe the expression on the bear, and the way you've used pen to highlight the watercolors.

Musk Ox has never looked so adorable. Very appealing combination of watercolor and line (pen or pencil?). Love the unusual critters. More please! (only if you wish of course!)
