White Tail Deer Painting (pastel)


(photo above a bit bright)

The worst has yet to come, I fear, as I have not yet started to work on the messy plants in the foreground and below the deer's feet. So much greenery in this piece (even the suede board is green) but working on the deer's beautiful face was a refreshing change of color.
