Drawing A Day #47: Water buffalo

August 25th, 2010

I’d never drawn a water buffalo in my life, but then got two requests this summer to do so. The first was for my friend’s kiddo’s nursery; and then came this request for a D.A.D. from Bill H.

I was inspired by the artwork I found when looking up pictures of water buffalo online, so I wanted to try this more traditional painting style — even though watercolour has always been such a challenging medium for me. The fish in the picture are obviously enhancing the bath time experience, and making the “water” in Water buffalo into a verb:

As an aside, while working on today’s D.A.D., I had this throwback running through my head:

Neneh Cherry – Buffalo Stance (1989)

Thank you Bill, and thank you Neneh Cherry!
