I have been spending a lot of time on this painting and have it down to maybe two more sittings. I did change a few things from last posting. Deleting and a little addition. Have yet to do a little more detail and value rendering on the deer and the foreground vegetation but am pleased with the composition and lighting. Deadline is getting close to enter this in the show I am painting this piece for but should make it fine.
I have gotten back to work on my cougar painting. blocking in the cougar with color and have begun detailing the rocks behind and on left side. Next sitting will be more work on cat and beginning work on the water. This is the point that becomes a little tedious and mechanical and takes a lot of stick-to-itness.
