For those folks who have given up on my Deer painting begun with idea thru sketches some posts back. I have again begun work on it. I had said it would be a drawn out process as my major wildlife pieces can be. I again changed what I had decided at one point to be a design I would begin painting on. It still botherd me and I let it set and mulled it over for a few weeks in my mind and yesterday and this morning I went back to repositioning and ended up closer to my original idea of a very verticle format. I have now sketched it out on a 24"x36" Canvas and am now ready to apply paint.

I'm with Vicki, got any coffee? lol

I like how you positioned the deer. I have never drawn on a canvas; the images go on my canvas through the paint and brush. Scary huh? :o)

I have utilized your suggestions and have blocked in the foreground.

It looks great. I love the composition you ended up with. You do get a sense that they hear something, but are unsure of its origin. All that pondering time was just part of the process...

Hey Gary; I like the way in which the overall shape of the group of deer seems to be pointing to the top of the hill. Looking forward to seeing this one. And hey, great pic of you sitting outside.....tho that would be a bit nippy for me!

Gary, I'm looking forward to seeing this piece progress. Your animals always have so much personality. I can envision some of the expressions on them already!
