Sheltering deer in Burbage Woods, in the Peak District...
The composition is based on sketches and photos from Burbage, Derbyshire. There are no deer here (as far as I know) I studied deer based at a deer farm in South Yorkshire and placed them in this setting.
The paint is sparse and light, I rubbed it into the canvas, then lifted it off, working on building up a mist like atmosphere with gentle layering.
This is an original one of a kind painting, no copies have been made.
