Cape Buffalo painting progression

I started out on this large painting with a view to going completely over the top with the amount of details but having got to grips with it ive been enjoying working a little more loosely.this is the first painting that ive used my new Michael harding oil paints exclusively on and ive got to say what lovely oils they are to work with.ive more or less completed the body and ears of the beast and next comes the really interesting part,the face and horns.this will obviously be the main focal point of the painting and so the details will be a little tighter here but my main focus with the painting has changed from being all about detail to being more about creating an impact with the scale of the painting which measures 36" in width.
