The paper I used to paint this white tailed deer had a little suprise pressed into it — a bug!
I didn’t want to waste the paper so this work is extra unique with its own little insect fossil on the far left side of the paper.
This piece was painted primarily with brusho pigment, I find brusho gives an intense colour which doesn’t fade as much as watercolour.
I used masking fluid to cover areas of the deers face to leave little white spots, and I used white pen for the odd whisker and hair.
I used a lot of orange watercolour (I couldn’t help myself) on an otherwise predominantly brown but gorgeous deer, white tailed deer are found throughout North and South America.
