When I found out that our first painting for Painting I was to be in black and white, I immediately knew that I wanted to paint a scene from my trip to Yellowstone National Park. There were so many reference photos to go through. I eventually decided on this one of a lone bison grazing in front of Old Faithful. He must have grown accustomed to the large crowds, because he never really cared that we were there. Overall, I am very pleased with this painting.
