WHITE STAG FROM CLASS



In my beginner class, we are still working on darks and lights.  Here is a white stag (photo Sweetie took around Yellowstone Park) in front of a dark wall.  I painted this little painting (1/8 sheet = 7.5" x 11") and the students painted the little dark calf in front of a light wall (or in a light field). 

For the wall, I used just 2 colors: 
Cobalt Violet Deep + Quinacridone Burnt Orange

I used the same colors on the stag with a bit of Raw Sienna in the warm spots and on the antlers.  And the grass was the wall color with Sap Green over it.

Those horns are majestic! Well done, Rhonda.

Thanks, Sherry. I just drybrushed the color in - should add a bit more shadowing but I think it served its purpose for the students.
