Description This cave bear is another painting from my 'Prehistoric' series. It is also on a Natural Fiber Painting Panel, painted in gouache. It is based on the cave bear, Ursus spelaeus.Like the others, this was a learning experience, and I don't claim to be completely accurate; I have so little free time I wanted to make sure art stayed 'fun' for me, so I did this one like the others - as a stylized and iconic interpretation, where I took liberties with scientific accuracy. I tried to keep the colors toned down and similar for cohesiveness, as it will be with all the paintings in this series.As always, thanks for looking!
