Prairie Bison “Wobbles”
19" x 15"
“Wobbles” is a Prairie Bison, and he lives in my home town of Marysville, Wa. Creating a portrait of a bison has been on my to-do list for several years. When the opportunity came in my Wildlife Illustration course, I knew I finally had to go out and find my own subject. It was such a pleasure to meet, observe, and photograph “Wobbles.” I am happy with my first attempt at rendering a Bison and hope to do several more studies in the future.
Subjects jump out at me, not literally, but with their unique beauty and intricacies. Something about it—texture, weight, pattern, lines—consumes my mind until I can study it and put it to paper.
