I wanted to revisit this motif in a larger format. I painted a small
study last year, but wanted to do something a little more involved.
Worth the effort! Below I've included an image of the study for comparison.
I've been experimenting with some new colors on my palette and have to say I'm pleased with the results. These whitetail paintings were fun studies and allowed me some freedom to push paint around and manipulate edges while maintaining good drawing. I learned a lot during both pieces. I'm excited about this new direction and the body of work that will result.
