For Aya's Pocket: Bison bicycled and gave a ride to Shrike on his Bike

I think I get Aya's book next.  This is for her pocket.  Watercolor, 7 x 10 arches paper, Windsor Newton and Turner watercolors, round synthetic brushes and one small filbert.  Oh, and I did the shadow with a chinese bamboo brush, lol.  I'm not overly fond of this, unfortunately.  The calf-bones are too long.  I see now how I might fix it, by making the upper leg larger, but I'd have to start over from scratch.

Ned's going to go apeshit over this. Bizon is his favorite animal. He's going to be so excited, you have no idea.

LOL--hope he doesn't mind the long calves. Cool that he likes Bison. (Mike might have this by now?)
