The grizzly is all blocked in with the undertones which will show through as I create his wet, ropy fur on top of this layer.
The bear is leaning over a log, and his great claws will shine against the wood. As well, there is a tree behind him on the right side of the canvas. So those items and the blurred background colors are next to go in as soon as this undercoating is dry. It is so much fun to see him begin to take form as the colors and shapes are placed on the canvas!
