Size: 72″ x 30″
Medium: Oil on canvas

sharon-markwardtThis was a commission, and when the client requested four species of animals in the same painting, I figured I was in for a big challenge.

I normally work from photos I take, and I knew there was no way I could get all those critters in one shot. Once she approved a thumbnail composition, I worked from four separate shots, and managed to make the proportions, perspective, and light source believable.

Then I had fun, and hid even more critters within the composition! (hard to see in a small image.)
