Grizzly Growl

Pyrography on pine. 7.75 x 10.5
One of the more popular wood burnings I’ve made, this snarling fellow now resides in Burford, Ontario. Using photo reference and my hobby burner my goal was to bring the bear to life. The trickiest part for me was figuring out the inside of his mouth. Not being able to (or wanting to) get up close and personal for a better look I had to wing it a bit. I’ve since smelt my share of puppy breath trying to get a better understanding of animal anatomy.

 

About Chris Wulff

I like to make pictures. Sometimes they move across the screen, sometimes they move you. I draw with fire on wood, with my finger on a phone, with a keyboard and fancy filters and sometimes even with a pencil on paper. I use a camera to capture what I see and my imagination to capture what I can't see.
