Elk painting

Here’s an elk painting I painted this week. The photo I used was from an artist-oriented website where people post their photos for other artists to use. Hopefully I’ll be able to go to a wildlife park pretty soon when the weather is a little warmer and get some of my own photos! I think I am going to try to enter this one into a juried show, so it won’t be available any time soon. I really need a better photo so that shadow isn’t on half of it.
UPDATE: I read the details for art submission, and one of the requirements was the work be “entirely conceived by you” so I decided since I used someone else’s reference photo that this painting did not meet that requirement. I submitted a horse painting instead, and am waiting to hear whether it was accepted….
