PastelPencil on Sennelier LaCarte paper
I have always preferred the old ways…hunting with horses and fishing rivers with a canoe. You always have a good chance of seeing game alongside rivers…that’s why riverboat hunters have shot out all the elk from the riverbanks in the fall.
This painting idea appealed to me because this guy is travelling and he spots a deer. The birchbark canoe was a real challenge to paint.
