Where the Buffalo Roam by Jason Tako

This painting was inspired by our trip to Wyoming this last summer. The northeastern part of Yellowstone is very mountainous, and there were bison here and there on the flat areas. I composed this scene using my small field studies (done in oil, and in the rain) and photo references. I wanted to give the feel of massive mountains and space. The incredible feeling you get when your out West.

Beautiful--I like the somber feel. I used to work in South Dakota so know what you mean about the big open spaces!

Is that the rain coming in on the left?

Nicely done!
