#236 Beyond my window: Mule deer

Last week, I took pictures of these scruffy looking does outside my studio window in Lander, Wyoming.  They are losing their winter coats but in a short time will be sleek and shiny as the weather continues to warm.

This time of the year the bucks will begin shedding their antlers but will quickly grow new ones for the fall rut and breeding season. Below, is an original etching of a mule deer buck scratching his back with an antler tine.

To draw is to see and it will positively affect your sculpting.  The subject's gesture and movement is what the artist must capture.
