The salmon run is a major event for the bears and is considered as one of nature's greatest events. Instinctively the bears come from miles with finger length claws swiping in hopes of catching one or more of these tasty treats.
I used a Q-tip and brushes to paint the large translucent splashes of water that the bear creates as he vigorously tries to capture the salmon swimming just below the surface of the river. With expertly placed sharp contrasting light and shadow brush strokes to give the bear his wet coat. He shakes off fine water droplets from his back as he continues the hunt.
Alaska is one of the few states that I have yet to visit and still have hopes of getting there to see these beautiful brown bears and witness this amazing event.
