Bison Acrylic Painting

24 Mar

I recently had one of those rare urges to do some painting, which was inspired by a photo I came across recently.  Granted, I did have fun painting this, and I don’t mind how it turned out.  There’s something funny about painting though…every time I end up painting, even if I thoroughly enjoyed the process, I walk away from the finished painting feeling as if I just had to get that out of my system.  My passion lies in drawing more than in painting by far.  In fact, my hand is so much more comfortable with a pen than with a brush that I found myself using a bit of stipple technique with the paint.  Sometimes, I think my hand will never relearn how to draw without the dot-dot-dotting action. 😉

Anyway, I thought I’d share this painting, nonetheless.  I did enjoy it, and I do think that it turned out nicely.  A good change of pace for a bit.

And now, back to drawing! 🙂


– Measures 5×7 inches.  Painted on a canvas board.

– Painted with acrylics, with a somewhat limited palette.


Thank you for looking, and happy spring!
