Bison Portrait by Patty Pendergast
Original Acrylic on Panel
Bison are one of my favorite animals to paint. Few things symbolize the West better than the American bison. They are tough and stoic, and have played in integral part in the history of this land. From an artistic point of view their sheer majestic presence is inspiring, the size of their head and the different textures of their fur make them very interesting to paint, however the thing I like most is the look in their eyes.
