Bison Update

Slowly making progress on the bison painting. This is where I left off on it yesterday. I spent most of the day working on it refining the grasses mostly. There's A LOT of grass in this painting! I am trying to say "grass" without painting every single blade of it. I am squinting trying to find shapes in the grass (if that makes any sense) and then painting these shapes and only pulling out some highlighted ones. Seems to be working. So what's left to do? Well, I need to finish the foreground grasses, finish the hind portion of the bison, and the fun part - the water. I truly love to paint water! The next post will be the finished piece.
