Polar bear

These incredible animals are the largest carnivores to be found on land. They can weigh up to 800 kg. Despite the yellow-white appearance of their fur, their skin is black and their translucent hairs merely reflects the visible light. Their populations are expected to decrease by thirty percent by 2050, with climate change the biggest threat to the survival of the species.

I painted this polar bear in watercolours and pen. Here is the original painting.
