Bear and Crow progress

I am working on this one at the end of the day when I am burnt out from painting on the ducks. So it's coming along slowly but getting there.

Acrylic Mallard Duck Painting

I am doing my famous "wait unti the last minute to start the duck" trick. It has finally hit me this is due in a couple of weeks and I need to get cracking. So I've put the bear aside to work on this. It is acrylic on gessobord, 7" x 10".

The mallard hen is about 85% complete. I will tweak and adjust her after I get things painted in around her and can compare values, etc.

And yes, awl theze phethers r hawrd on mi eyes...

Bear and Crow

A little further along now. I've added some washes to the bear and started working up some detail all around a bit. Still a long way to go though.

Bear and Crow acrylic painting in miniature

I was taking photos of this snoozing grizzly when a crow landed on the rock next to him. The bear woke up and stared at the crow as if he wasn't quite sure what to do about it. The crow ignored the bear...maybe he thought he was part of the rock.

What happened next was somewhat exciting. But I will leave it to your imagination to finish the rest of the story. :)

I am painting this one in miniature, 4" x 6". Acrylic on hot press WC paper.
