In 2005 I visited the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. The center worked to re-introduce the Wood Bison to Alaska. A small herd wondered the park. With the help of the Canadian Government and through a careful breeding program, this spring they will be reintroducing the animals into the wild.
My photographs did not do the animals justice, so I promised myself I would learn to draw.
For me, the human face is the most difficult to capture. In honor of those bison, and my Eyvind Earl post over at the BoFN, I thought I would share one of my partially completed Study in Eyes drawings.
And a little secret to my learning to draw. I use curves. Which leads me to the musical portion of our special edition tradition. While driving cross country last fall, every popular radio station played “All About That Bass”.
From Washington State to Wisconsin it filled the air waves. We pulled over to watch the bison outside of Buffalo Jump, South Dakota. They moved with the bass—and treble.
Take it away Meghan Trainor with “All About That Bass”.
Perceive, believe, achieve. Or in this case boogie with the bison . . . .
Until next week.
