Mule Deer

Mule Deer 18x24  oil on linen

I gave myself a challenge with this one. 
 I haven't done a lot of wild life in my landscapes but wanted to have a go at it.  It was exhilarating, as most new challenges tend to be.  It was so fun, pulling out the stops and throwing on some textures and strokes to add interest! 
 The original photo reference came from a hike in the mountains in Colorado.  It was so special to encounter Momma and her twins.  They seemed to be curious but not really afraid of us.
