I'm happy with how it turned out, it was a different style/colour mix for me.
I can see the image representing the 21st Century need for hunting and collecting things usually for appearance sake. To make yourself feel better and even more so - for appearance (hence the antlers).
This is the first of a new set, I'm starting small, this canvas is 300x400mm (12x15")
I want to play around with shadow and a dark background.
I've started with a red pastel brief sketch.
Just in case you are confused, it is intended to be a painting of a girl holding her hand above her brow. I'd like her to have either antlers or tree branches looking like antlers and a basket of some sort in her arms.
I'm really looking forward to working on her more - certainly looking a bit basic at the moment as I start on her skin tones.
