What I have researched and observed will find it's way into the black bear image until there is conversation coming off the canvas and the observer can feel the pull. Then I get out the paints.

STUDIO NOTES OF SKETCHING A BLACK BEAR
In the studio when in front of the easel , I begin the journey of finding the images of the bear with line. I do this with large vine charcoal. There is a constant movement of putting down lines and wiping them off until the image works and the relationship begins. There will be days of this before i pick up brush and paint.
