A Pastel for Today

6" x 6" pastel on Canson paper
My friend in Idaho has sent me several of her great photos. Her hub took a photo of two fawns on her property. I needed to change the way the photo shoot showed the first one looking away, and the second one was cut off, so I combined the two to make
this one fawn in my pastel on Sunday. It's a quickie..I think it needs a little more work on his chest, and the brown background, although it's not as important as the animal in this one. Not a portrait, but I liked creating the light from the left and like sketching out animals.

Nice little fawn.

I have your portrait packaged up to mail. Hope to send it out this coming week. Hope it will get to you within a couple of weeks.
