Sometimes I get an overwhelming urge to paint something and it has to get done, no matter what else is on the agenda. This painting is one of those! It is of a mother bear and her cub at Katmai National Park in Alaska, and I am using a photograph taken by one of the commenters on the Explore.org forum who actually went there this summer. I'm using Derwent Inktense pencils, one of my favourite mediums. Trying to squeeze this in amongst actual paid work has been interesting...I'm afraid housework and gardening has had to take a back seat, but there's nothing wrong with that!
