Another in my series of small miniature studies of the big boys in Alaska. I was fortunate to be able to research bull moose in the rut one year in Denali National Park in early September, and watched some of the largest bull moose sparring with smaller challengers. This was one of the really big bulls. I want the huge antlers to stand out and glow in the sunshine so I’m laying in a very dark under painting behind them. This is a quick study, next I will begin the application of dots.
