Thanks for all those great photos, Sue! :clap:

Years ago, I fell into painting a lot of bison/buffalo for an auction site. It became a regular thing until I ran out of good reference photos. So it felt good to go back and revisit one of these ol' guys.

Oil on 5x7 canvas panel. Thick paint...much of it applied by painting knife.

C&C welcome. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! :)

Done in 2 hrs.

Terrific as usual. I love the way it disappears behind the sunlit grasses- great sense of depth and mood.

Love it - as always ;)
I especially love, how you worked his facial expression: in comparison to the thick, bold colors in the body. When you look at those buffalos, you recognize them as being bold - heavy - strong. In my opinion it's great to work the face and expression in such a "sensitive" way.
Thanks for sharing :)
