‘Stag in the Snow’2003
15" x 12" including frame For Sale (without back-lighting)
Initially done for a Christmas card design, this is a piece of work I have always been very proud of. It was the first time I had experimented with the technique of laying on an individual brush-full of wax, letting it cool and then placing another next to it, to get the ‘lumpy’ texture of the snow. I have since used this successful technique in all my ‘snow’ pictures. The cold blues and greys were chosen to give the work a real ‘icy’ feel.
