"Fire and Ice", pastel, 10 3/4 x 18 1/2
So rare for me to see a Buck. The hunters kill them all off...which saddens me so. I photographed this handsome young buck from far away with a zoom lens...cropped in tight to his trusting face and played with color keeping values and temperature in mind.
As my muse dictated, I changed the background to be more firey, foreground cold...creating the title "Fire and Ice".
For you friends out there on my mailing list...he may be this year's Christmas Card :). He was so much fun to paint!
