The Contender - Red Deer stag 36" x 34" oil on canvas

There is still a little to be done with this painting but mainly just a little tinkering with the colour of the stags bracken crown.this is a quick studio shot of the painting drying on a stand where i'll leave it for a couple of days whilst thinking about improvements I might want to make.this is my biggest oil painting to date and whilst I enjoyed some aspects of working large such as the ability to work a little looser I still find large oils a little overwhelming especially when it comes to moving them without drama! I hope you've enjoyed watching this piece come together,its certainly been challenging at times.
