Kristin #84, Wood Bison

Like Elva, I like to get to study animals in captivity (though I don't get to as much as her). Each spring I make a trip (hopefully more this year) to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. This is just a sketch from a photo I took last year, made in anticipation. Sketching from photos helps me sketch from life, as it is a good way to study the animals.

Your bison are wonderful Kristin. It is always an extra challenge to paint a group of animals. Great shadows too.
