There is a myth here in Norway, that tourists come to us expecting to see polar bears walking around in the streets.
I assume the myth is quite exaggerated, but it’s a fun one.
We don’t have polar bears on the mainland, to be clear, but you can find them on the island Svalbard.
Needless to say, they take a few more precautions there when heading out the door.
Well, to get back on track here, I realized that I’ve never drawn nor painted a polar bear before.
So I needed to do something about that.
And this became the result:
I like how this painting ended up, with it’s kind of fabricky look.
The colours are quite strong.
But the rough strokes tone it down a bit.
And the polar bear didn’t end up looking to bad either.
I’m a bit unsure about how this situation will end.
And why the ship ended up in such a state.
But how fun it is to contemplate!
