Deer Stalking

We live in a very rural area and so seeing whitetail deer is a common occurrence, but this past fall we seemed to see more and more and closer to our property. In fact, the huge acorn crop of the big white oaks on our land attracted some regular visitors for several weeks.

The last week or so I have been out in the late afternoon looking for them in the woods across the road. We are surrounded by woods and fields and I have learned where they can be found around dusk. The other day I was lucky enough to be in just the right spot as four does came out of the woods.

Beautiful sketch, Deborah! I've been going back and re-reading some of your older blog posts from four or five years ago - there's tons of great information there! It's a pleasure, too, to revisit the progression in your paintings.

Hi Deborah I can see this beautiful drawing of a deer appear within your forest paintings!

Hi Caroline. Yes, that is exactly the idea!
