#511 In the field . . . deer, con't

Start this series with post # 510, Mar. 5, 2014

Below,  is an early etching entitled, Muley.  This etching was one of the largest, and therefore most difficult to create.
The etching process involves drawing with a needle and tone is achieved with a single-stroke technique.
See the process explained in posts #470 - 476, Oct. 16 - Nov. 6, 2013.

Below, is a recent block-in of a whitetail deer, modeled from life from my Wyoming studio window.
I do many quick studies such as this and set them aside for future completion.
Many times, a block-in will set for years on a studio shelf before I return to it.

Below,  is a sculpture entitled Whitetail.  This work is an example of a sculpture created in
one-sitting and cast in bronze.  Typically, I live with a piece before it goes to the foundry to be cast.
