#324 Drawing: Deer, con't . . .

Like most artists, I use photography to collect reference for my work.  A camera however, cannot take the place of drawing the figure from life.  While photography can be used as a "memory-jog" to supply important information, drawing helps the artist understand the figure's form, structure, and individual characteristics.

At right, is a photo of a young Mule Deer buck by my pond in Lander, Wyoming.
