Happy Birthday Bear!

Bear is 3 today. This good looking young Retriever is on the project board for today and I am going to be working on him this evening trying some close-crops and adding in more paint strokes. This will be his 2nd portrait. The image above is a working sketch of Bear's portrait in progress. We have a more relaxed shot this time. Below you can find his fun "Bear with Stick" portrait.

Bear's humans are professional wildlife photographers and so their photographs are always a pure joy to play with.
