Next a couple of animal paintings would be deers, based on photos I took during Olympic mountain hiking last summer. I'll call them as "Oh Deer Series". This is the Series I. This deer was on the steep slope with another one when I was climbing up toward the peak. To show the feeling of steepness, I've chosen vertical format and placed the deer below the center. The top half would be filled with dense spruce-like trees, which is dark green and good complementary to deer's reddish body. 22"x16". I almost finished drawing. It would be left until I finishes Crescent Bay. I really need to finish it asap.
