Phase 2 of “Teklanika Bears” Painting

My research for this painting consisted of photos I’d taken of bears in various places in Denali National Park, none were at this location.  My photos of the mountain range did not include this part of the river, so I pulled my ideas together from many different photos and my memory.  What intrigued me the most was the evening light on the distant mountains, the bears and foreground are incidental.  I didn’t like the rock in the foreground on the bottom left, the shadow and placement seemed to lead my eye off the picture plane, otherwise I felt like the composition worked.  More tomorrow.
