Dear visitors….you will already have seen my original Bear with grassy background and in that post I mentioned I wasn’t that happy with the very boring background I settled for because the original photo reference had the backside of a rather large four wheel drive dominating the top right corner. I went for a safe and I have to say sorry choice of background because I wanted to see the finished work. Haste is never a good thing and while it was OK, it most certainly wasn’t startling.
Bear lives with one of the most amazing views on the western escarpment of Tamborine Mountain and the vast valley below stretches all the way to the Great Dividing Range. In Bear’s case he enjoys having Flinder’s Peak as a reference point and this peak is included in the new background. You can also make out what appears to be a horse training track – the area is dotted with horse properties and horse training facilities dominate all over that valley.
Anyway….I’m leaving the old post and the new one just to show it is OK to change one’s mind. I hope you prefer the new background as do I.
