Dust Devil by Misted-Dream Dust Devil by Misted-Dream

Another drawing I've been working on this past few weeks in between paintings and other work. For me, anyway, it's difficult to separate buffalos and dust--they always look so nice together! So I figured I'd take that idea to the extreme and really make a dusty environment. This is depicting the buffalo after he has just shaken off the last of the dust from a good roll.

Graphite on 14" X 11" smooth bristol. A combination of my own refs and some from the RIL on WetCanvas.

SOLD
