Fawn in gouache

I did this little fawn last night. It's small, just 3.5"x 5" on watercolor paper. I initially had a lot of trouble getting the grass to look right. I couldn't seem to get the depth I wanted or the right color greens. I kept at it awhile, scrubbed some things out, painted over other areas and I think I'm pretty satisfied.

What a sweet painting, very cute little baby! Love it's spots.... Your green grasses look super good to me, very good 3-D effect looking into them.

Catherine, GREAT JOB! Your grass looks great and the fawn's fur is wonderful.

Re: Fawn in gouache

Thanks everyone! I'll have to think about the work in progress part especially as this one went through a bad case of the "uglies" before it finally came together. The grass really gave me fits and I almost trashed it, but figured if it was going to go south on me I'd let it go all the way and see what I could learn! I am noticing that my scan really brought out the hair strokes. They are much more subtle in the actual painting.

Re: Fawn in gouache

Oh Catherine, that's the great part of a WIP is seeing how you come out of the ugly stage. It may help others (me) to actually get past that ugly stage in our paintings.
