Black Bear Pastel Painting
Original Pastel Painting by Dave Nevue
Reference image courtesy of Wildlife Reference Photos.
The American black bear can range from 4 – 7 feet long from tail to nose and are about 3 feet high on all four legs. Male black bears can weigh up to 300 lbs with rounded ears, short tails, long snout, and small eyes.
Their skin is a light grey, and their fur is typically black but can also be cinnamon, yellow-brown or dark brown.
I chose this reference image because of the side profile and how the light created a beautiful dark purple and blue tint on the fur. The light green background enhances the beautiful black bear’s soft fur.
Even though black bears can be dangerous, especially when the mothers protect their young, this painting shows a gentile side of this bear.
The black bear pastel painting was created on PastelMat with PanPastels, Pestel Pencils, and Soft Pastel Sticks.
You will receive the original 8″ x 10″ Black Bear Pastel Painting matted and framed ready to display in your home.
