Like Ice In The Sun


A colourful pastel painting of a polar bear.


‘Ice In The Sun’ is a colourful pastel painting on pastelmat card. It depicts the worlds largest carnivore, Ursus Maritimus or polar bear. As the planet warms up and the polar ice caps begin to melt away, the dwindling population of polar bears live on the very brink of starvation for much of their lives. I’ve placed the magnificent creature in a wintery wilderness with a semi abstract feel to the background. I’ve used Panpastels as well as pastel pencils for this piece, achieving a high level of detail in the main subject while creating atmosphere and mood with the misty, cloudy background. With my pastels, I’ve also added a ‘lens flare’ effect in the sky to add more interest. If memory serves me well, this is only the second polar bear I’ve ever portrayed.
Measuring approximately 16 x 12.5 inches, this painting is presented in a white mount and framed in an oak coloured wooden frame to a total size of about 23 x 20 inches, ready to hang. It is signed on the front and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

Shipping Policy

International customers will often have to pay import duty before their picture can be released by customs. This can be quite substantial, for instance Canada may charge 20% of the total buying price including shipping, depending on the province. It is in the customers own interest and responsibility to check in advance what this cost may be as it is not included in my selling price. The customer is entirely responsible for any additional customs fees or import duty charged on their purchase.


Refund Policy

If upon receipt of your artwork and within 14 days you are in any way dissatisfied because of condition or inaccurate description, I will refund the full purchase price minus the initial delivery costs incurred by me. Returns will be at the expense of the purchaser and must be re-packaged adequately. Refunds will only be paid upon my receipt of the undamaged item.
