Iconic image of a stag. I created a life size Stag in willow and working on it, trying to work out the musculature I wanted to paint one as well.
The Stags Head is painted in acrylic and oils on a primed 30″x20″ boxed canvas
I experimented with some new oil paints which are pearlesent. The idea was to isolate the head, but hint at the snowy landscape in an orignal way. I didn’t want snowflakes, snow capped mountains or trees or other such clichés.
