Watercolor painting of a bison by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Distant Thunder

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 20″h x 13″w, 1997.

I painted this grand buffalo on a ridge in Yellowstone National Park. I painted the bulky thunder clouds in the distance to compliment the huskiness of the buffalo. Painting those cumulus clouds in watercolor was tedious and time consuming and required dozens of washes to build up the values to look photographic and dimensional.
