Fiona, overall an excellent painting of the buffalo :clap: :clap: :clap: I just have a problem with the mouth, which is not correct. It is too big and sloping. Check it against the original photograph where you can hardly see the actual mouth details. Just correct this and you will have a superb painting O0

I forgot I'd not posted the revised version of this with the mouth fixed.

Cheers

Absolutely amazing how you get those pastels to look so great..I am struggling with that medium.

Thank you  all   :)  And Carol the trick to working with pastels is to just plough through the stage where it looks ghastly, and not to mind the dust ....

I hold to my Mother's belief that dust can only get so deep before it turns into topsoil and you can sweep it outside  ;D
