This is another watercolor journal image, done on 10x13" Arches paper. It was painted from a reference photo I took several years ago. I was hiking on a suburban 'trail' when not just this one, but two bucks appeared. The lupine was near its peak bloom and the bucks were both in velvet, so I shot away with the camera for a couple of minutes. This was the best image compositionally, with the deer moving downslope and in mid-step, giving a lot of movement to the image. I'm going to try painting this image more carefully in the studio as well.
