Colored Pencil Coloring Art... Bear and Bear Grass

Notice the yellow highlights and darker green & blue low lights on the bushes. See how a darker brown is used on the shadow areas of the bear.  (  Grizzly!   Minne-Mural™    Colored by R.Ruth)

The Plant on the right is called "Bear Grass".  The  name goes goes back to the Lewis & Clark Expedition where it's mentioned in the journals.  

Bear Grass is actually not really a grass. 

Bears don't eat bear grass, but it does get used for lining their dens.  Elk do eat it, so it's also called "Elk Grass" (although it is still not a grass.)

Native Americans used it to make baskets, cloth and  medicine tonics. The underground stems called  "rhizomes" were used for food.  

An apple a day...

This one was great fun!"  (Coloring Artist Christy, CA)



Each person 's approach to coloring continually evolves toward an identity of its own.  

It will never pause there for long, though,  because the growth always continues.

You'll be amazed!

Of interest

The shadows on these rocks colored by Sienna of Iowa are noteworthy.  Shading is an option in coloring art just as it is in any other art... but I think we all admit in this case it certainly adds interest and depth to these rocks.   This is a detail from "Horses"   Minne-Mural™ Coloring Art Poster.  See the blog & Focus Galley too (2) for more on this.
