Portrait Details

Size: 25" x 18"
Medium: Pastel on velour paper
Animal: American Elk or Moose, Alces alces
Title: "Nosing Around"

Using numerous reference photos, I changed the setting and the mood for this painting from the original (photographs) which were gloomy due to bad weather. I manipulated the contrast of each photo and moved each subject until I reached  the desired composition.
