Project 43: Black Bear

This black bear lived in an outdoor enclosure at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson, Arizona. I’ve seen wild black bears in the U.S. and Canada, but I have never been able to get a good reference photo in their natural habitat. Eventually, this bear struck a relaxed pose that I wanted to paint.
