Bear Kiss - Polar Bears by Heather Ward

Currently unavailable for purchase

There is a great challenge with drawing white animals. I’d been thinking about the polar bear for a while, then one of my reference photos spoke to me. I added the cub and the icy background. This will be the first in a series of mother/baby drawings.

Polar bears are still listed as a “vulnerable” species. Melting polar ice makes it harder for the bears to find food.

Charcoal on Strathmore smooth bristol paper, 17″×14″, 2009. Limited edition prints available.
