A stag (also known as a hart) emerges from the dawn mist in an enchanted woodland. This is a painting that slowly evolved. I started with a black and white forest landscape, done over a couple sessions, then covered with a thin copper wash. After that, I used misty greens and purples, with a glow coming from the distance. A spirit animal, in the form of a deer, seemed right for the piece. Finally, I used a little metallic gold to highlight the foliage for this unusual tonalism landscape. An original acrylic painting on a stretched canvas (the staple-free sides are painted), inspired by the Oregon woods. It has been varnished to protect the paint and preserve the lustrous colors.
If you would like hanging wire added to the back of the canvas, please let me know in the notes to seller when you check out. Or, email me right after.
