More work on my Independent painting

Progressing on my NIC Fine Arts 121 final Independent painting.


Some shading has been done on the water to create perspective.

Planning the placement of the deer stencils in relation to the final foreground tree shapes.

Preparing to the paint the doe with Golden Fluid Transparent Red Iron Oxide paint.

The buck was painted in a darker colour for variation, and to put that deer at a distance.

Detail of the front details applied with tinted Golden Light Molding Paste and quilting stencils.

Detail of the upper row of trees.

Almost ready for the foreground trees.
