Whitetail Fawn

Oil on 5x7 archival canvas panel.
A perfect symbol of Spring! A fawn amongst new forest growth...the continuance of life.
The paint was applied with both a painting knife and a brush. Great texture.

  1. Hi Dean, What a sweet painting, how could you not love a little fawn? Barb

  2. Hi Barb, great to "see" ya again! Thanks.

  3. Hey there! Happy Spring! Lovely little fawn. ;)

  4. Thank you, Kathy, my friend!

  5. Hi Dean. Nice painting. I like how you did not add too much detail in the plants. Just the right amount of warm underpainting showing through to keep it from getting too cool. Good combo of brush and palette knife too.

  6. Thanks, Frank. I largely used the pre mix method with this.

    As far as the right balance of warm under painting showing through cool paint and brush ratio to's similar to walking a tight rope over a boiling pit of failure. You really have to keep your eye upon your goal of balance. I'm glad you think I achieved it.

  7. That burning pot of failure does not really burn that bad Dean.

  8. Hey Deano,
    I especially like how you used a light color behind the fawn, it really makes the fawn stand out. Very nice!

  9. Thank you, Jennifer. Believe it or not, that was a primary goal when I did this painting...Light subject/dark background..dark subject area/light background...lost lines.
