Grizzlies Bear Hug Great Bear Rainforest
Grizzly bears are much maligned and feared. These are the bears of Katmai National Park in Alaska. Bears in this area are known to pay no attention to photographers who come to see them. They go about doing their business. The title says it all. The intuitive use of a palette knife gives the energy and movement in water made by the bears and a brush to follow the green pattern in the underpainting to create the bubbles and splashes in a suggestive way. The result is a painting that seems come to life through technique rather than depiction.
