The Warrior And The Bear
Digital Art - Digital Painting
On the plains of the American Wild West, a Native American warrior and his trusty Indian Pony are tracking something. Both of our heroes are wearing war paint and seem ready for a struggle. The man is armed with a tomahawk and he holds it at the ready in his right hand. Meanwhile, the horse is alert, scanning the grasses of the surrounding prairie.
It's a misty morning and difficult to see far before the fog obscures everything. The hunter stoops to examine the ground. Suddenly, a sound from his horse alerts him to another presence. Looking up, materializing from the fog is a monstrous grizzly bear gazing malevolently at him with its teeth bared.
I'm happy the way the environment worked out in this scene. It's a bit different from my usual color palette, more muted, but I like the way it still has a sense of tension. This work is among several I've done recently featuring a bear. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that we've had a lot of bears in the neighborhood lately going through the trash cans. Though, here in North Georgia, we have rather small black bears, not huge, frightening grizzly bears.
Thanks for looking!
