In "real life" this bison was out on the prairie, with the Rocky Mountains behind him. He was following a cow, and feeling his "Cheerioats"! I loved the way his fur on his face went this way and that way...it was certainly fun to paint. Their fur (wool? fiber? fleece?) is so soft, it's like touching a cloud. It's kind of unexpected to know such large, tough, animals can be so soft.
I hope your day is interesting and full of new things!
