Prompt: Winter Stag
prompted by: Rowan Lewgalon, during Sketch Fest #83 (January, 2017)

This is a finished version of a sketch!

Finally finished this. I always feel after painting a sketch that I loose something. I still like it though. Watercolors on Arches hotpressed paper. Size 7 x 10


SpringDragon says: I understand the feeling of finishing a sketch, but this is a very lovely painting. I am especially amazed with the sky! (I almost wonder is if the thing about sketches is that because of their loose lines, they hold several different pictures at the same time. A finished piece is usually only one of those, and thus appears more flat to the eye? Not to mention the creator usually has a much harsher opinion of their own work.) But again, love how this turned out! ~ Reply?

Katerina Romanova says: Oh, this is so beautiful... The subtle colours and the composition. It's the kind of picture I'd have loved to see in a fairytale book as a kid. ~ Reply?

Rowan Lewgalon says: Do you, by any chance, sell prints of this beauty? ~ Reply?
