I'm so pleased that the backdrop greenery is just about complete. It was way easier than I first anticipated. Phew! I will be going back to the background a bit later and tone down some of the brightness on a few leafy areas to the left of the painting (I still find it a bit too bright).
Creating the deer's coat with the light shadows/reflections is proving to be quite interesting. I am currently using about 6 or 7 different colors of pastel to get the right intensities.
