Spring Fandango Drawing
I liked how Winter Fandango turned out, so I decided to do a series of seasonal polar bears in Y'upik dress. The next season was Spring. Since the winter bear was a male, I made the spring bear a female.
A good painting starts with a drawing. I usually do 5 to 10 quick thumbnail sketches to play with the layout of a picture. I choose the best one and make a more detailed drawing from it. Here is the drawing I did for Spring Fandango.
