Bull #2


Bull #2
Rather than starting with his antlers, I wanted to paint his body first and make the value adjustment relative to Bull #1. Here in addition to his antlers, his bell and back still need to be painted.

Note: For both bulls I have put in a turpentine wash for their shadows.  Bull #1 has a duller and more purple shadow while Bull #2 has a more intense blue shadow. Much of it will be covered by tundra but some will peak through.
