I was commissioned to paint this very large bison by a couple who love the west, Wyoming and buffalo. The clients wanted the painting to communicate the wildness and freedom that a buffalo symbolizes.

My goal for this wildlife portrait was to make his fur bright and three-dimensional. I wanted people looking at this bison to feel like they can reach out and touch him.

His bright blue eyes drastically contrast with is fiery orange fur.

I made the background feel simple, smooth and wide open like the prairie, and in order to contrast with the rough texture and details of his face.
