Artistic Polar Bear Challenge: 100 Ways In 100 Days. #57 - Cool Analogous

Where there's warm, there must be cool to balance it.

Cool Analogous Bear
Acrylic on paper

This time our flavors are Brilliant Yellow Green, Emerald Green, Cobalt Turquoise, and a bit of Pyrrole Crimson to reduce chroma and value.  Yes, I confess, I'm one of those 'I Don't Like Mixing With Black' artists.  Not that I feel I'm losing my artistic soul or anything if I do, I just like more colorful solutions.

Gotta agree with the black statement - especially in watercolor, I think the black usually looks too dull and dirty and much prefer mixing my own "black" - which to me is a relative term.
Only 43 to go!!!

I agree totally with you as far as black goes :) These bears are just tooooo cool!
I wish the bear would send some of his coolness our way...we are sizzlin´......I think I need to start doing a dog series....I´d start out with the Dog days of Summer for sure....

Yep, my feelings exactly, Deb.

Cynnie, you are truly a multitalented artist. Your handpainted papers are beautiful, the books are incredible, and your watercolors are gorgeous. I particularly like the Siebentischwald forest winter scene.

And Benny is a cutie, too!

Where in Germany are you?
