Bear on tree in colored pencil

This bear is done with colored pencil on Pastelmat. The reference is wildlife reference for artist. I am learning to do more backgrounds.

I really like the way you handle the sense of depth by removing almost all details from the background. This has given me some inspiration for my next colored pencil piece.

Very nice, I like it a lot! I seem to be attracted to bears and crows in art. I like this one and the entire composition. I am planning on a steatite sculpture of a bear (doesn’t everyone do one?) and plan to start in June. I have the tools and the stone (about 150 US pounds) and think it should wind up weighing about 100 lbs. Maybe about 12 inch tall by 8-10 wide and 16 inch long. If it turns out half as good as this bear, I will be happy.
