Will the Buffalo is an elder in one of the largest wild Buffalo herds roaming the great plains of North America. He is irritable but wise, grunts frequently, and knows how to find a good tasting wild grass better then any buffalo around.
Will is outlined with black Indian ink, and his geometric shapes are filled in with watercolours.
This is his story:
~Will the Buffalo~
My herd spans
Many great plains
Foraging as we go
So wild and free
We wander across
Shall be respected
By our great herd
Our circle of life
The great plains
As we spread
Food for another year
A wild herd of buffalo.

The watercolour is printed on fine art watercolour paper to best represent the original painting. To ensure the longevity of the print, it will be sprayed with archival spray that makes it more UV and water damage resistant, as well as increases the scratch resistance so the ink will have more durability. The original painting is done with watercolour and Indian ink, which I then scanned in a high resolution scanner for premium quality. This digital scan of my original work is then used for printing.
The print comes with my artist signature and a date for authenticity. Limited print runs will be numbered (if applicable).
This item is carefully shipped between hard cardboard to prevent bending and to keep your product safe. Standard shipping is done with Canada Post. Alternate expedited shipping is available (at additional price).
My Watercolor Animals started as a single curved stroke with black Indian Ink and a dipping fountain pen gifted to me from my grandmother.
I’m interested in Native American art, particularly the Haida and Coast Salish, and I feel the shapes I integrate into the bodies of my animals accentuate the natural energy of the animals, bringing out their body parts. This process draws attention to the different contours of an animal’s body while still remaining relatively 2D.
I have created names, personalities, and habits for each (almost all) animal. This personifies them by enlisting the help of prose in a curious moment of observation.
