Rhino - Oil on Canvas Step two

So this is how far I am. I have started blocking in the Rhino with the overall color that I see in the Rhino Reference photo (btw the reference photo is that of a Rhino my husband took on his recent trip to South Africa - he takes amazing photos)

The blocking in process also helps me to see where I need to adjust proportions and make corrections to the painting before I go in and start working with the details.

Rhino - Oil on Canvas

This is a oil painting of a Rhino that I have started. It's one of a serious that I am doing on the Big Five of South Africa. The Big Five of South Africa are the Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo and Elephant. I have already completed the Lion painting called "Superior" which is on my website. My goal with this is to try and do the animal as realistic as possible with smooth brush strokes.
