View Full Version : Mule Deer

12-26-2019, 12:46 PM
9.75x7 watercolor on Fabriano Extra White 140 lb cold press paper done over this past weekend from one of many deer photos. I like this backside view of the mule deer surveying its fall going into winter domain. In the imaginary background I've added aspens and fall foliage including red and orange leaves. There's a nice backdrop to the freshly fallen snow in the middle ground. The cold sky is darkening with a pending threat of rain or more snow.
C&C welcome :cat:

Very nice Kay. It is warm here in Australia, well I should say we are having degrees of around 21celcius the last few days which is nice. Weather has been all over the place though and have been waiting for summer time to kick in. It rains a lot here but no snow. Your deer painting is very nice :)

Great work Kay... Is so common to see that pose on deer... is like they want to show their ass :D

I really like this one Kay. Lovely scene with the wintry trees in the background and I like the combination of warm and cool colours. :)

This is wonderful! I love how she blends into the background a bit - exactly what deer do. Beautiful composition too. Great drama!
