the story behind this one is that i had an old painting and i did not like so painted over it . the patterns of the previous painting still showed through so i covered the surface with some medium grit acrylic paste when it was finished it looked like a piece of stone so I thought this was the ideal image, probably not very commercial but i like it..tried to keep the shapes to an almost abstract design.
details :-20x16" deep edge canvas with acrylic paints.
C&C welcome as always.
Ken.

I really like this. Lots of action and like you said the surface looks pretty authentic. :) I really like the leaping 'deer'. The arched backs create lots of movement and there's the anticipation of the hunt in the air. The background really makes the figures leap....

I like it! And particularly that background. Tells a story in a very simple but effective way...nice going.

Extremely successful background texture -

Next time, think about using an earthy color for the figures - just a suggestion as I like this one a lot.

Thanks Katherine i did try out a number of earth colours and eventually settled on a mix of burnt sienna and burnt umber. I think the lighter colours looked ok (especially a red oxide.)but did not give enough contrast to the background.

I think this is wonderful! :clap:

probably not very commercial Oh, I don't know about that. Granted it isn't a painting that would fit in with every decor....but what painting does?
