Another Cape Buffalo Study – Mean Guy!

I’ve continued to paint another Cape Buffalo study (see more on my site – Art Studies)whilst the gorilla painting is drying, this one I loved – it looks real mean. Although most people think Cape Buffalo are grey they really are anything but, when you really look close. I will add two more buffalo under these two, this time they will be in their natural surrounding, walking through marsh – where they are most at home – I thought it would be a nice change to the dryness of the vegetation in the top two studies.

The studies will be for sale if any collectors are interested.

    This is another great painting in the making.

    Jason : You should consider putting up a Etsy shop online. Its another innovative way to promote online.

      Thanks for the idea Thomas – at the moment other than my limited editions the images are copyrighted by an image gallery so my hands are tied – perhaps in the future? thanks again

    Would you know if Dian Fossey was an artist?

  3. Hi Jason,
    I just found your site. I was looking online for more information on the Cape Buffalo and found there you were. Great work, my friend. I am also an aritst and have a client that is a big African game hunter who needes a large painting of Cape Buffalo for over the fireplace. I am striving to do a pleasing composition yet trying to keep the nature of the animals intact. Do you find that difficult as an aritst? Yeah, we sometimes know what might look better, but it may not fit into the “big picture” so to speak. I tend to be a little compulsive when it comes to getting the animal right in the right habitat etc…. I want my main “Buff” to be real ruttie and nasty. I know you go to Africa and take many of your own photos, but where else do you get your reference material? Thanks for having such a cool site and sharing your work.

      Thanks – to be honest I just go with what feels right – as well as using my own references I have friends that are photographers, plus loads of books which give me ideas I adjust. Hope that helps
