This British deer painting is the result of inspiration from all sides!
From an early age I've loved spotting deer in the wild; Iíve been working with the Deer Study & Resource Centre; I've been thinking of the six British deer species as a group; and Iíve recently been looking again at the work of Rien Poortvliet and like his sketchy style of showing several species on the same image.
Originally I wanted to show the six british deer species (Roe, Red, Chinese Water Deer, Fallow, Muntjac and Sika) in proportion to each other but the size difference between them was too great for that idea to work. So I experimented a bit and this is the result.
We're fortunate to have six different species of British deer, and I'm looking forward to painting them again in the future.
