Deer painting blues...
Just when I thought I could tackle this painting again, I've been hit with a wave of frustration. I guess I should have known better than to paint when I felt tired...I am just feeling so lost in all those leaves and I just can't concentrate!!!!!
Part of the problem is I know there is so little left to do on this piece and want to finish it so bad since I purchased a wonderful frame for it. Oh, and not to mention I want to move on to another piece right??!
Some thoughts so far... I like the dark area unde the log and will add some darker foliage to give illusion of depth. The angled stump on the far bottom left I feel I should round the top off perhaps instead of extending to the edge...not sure yet.
Then, the light foliage in front of the deer is too much of the same value. Need to figure out how to approach that area. Might add some various shades of browns to break the green.
Best if I sit back and think on this one.
