Painting a day 2016-Day 2-Over the hill

Elk study

Elk study

Continuing with the “studies” theme….this little painting is based on a photo I took on a camping trip in Rocky Mountain National Park a few years ago.  the sun was just starting to rise, the morning was crisp, and we were blessed to witness a herd of elk moving through.  They were being accompanied by a handful of mule deer does and yearlings.  The mulies just kept hanging around the herd and grazing with them.  I’m not sure if they were following for safety or what, but it was humorous to watch the bull run them off half-heartedly, only to see them continue to follow the herd.

    Better show that series of work at the depot soon. What a neat group of paintings.

      Thanks Wanda–once a year, I plan a month and do one small painting a day for the whole month. I try to limit my time on each painting to one hour. It’s great practice and quite a challenge sometimes.
