New Fawn Paintings on Wood

I have finished another painting in my “Wildish Spirit” series ,”Yearling.”

It is a mixed media, mostly acrylics on a wood burl.  My dad gave me the burl when we were cleaning out his shop a few years ago.  I sanded it smooth and put a couple of coats of clear gesso on it to prep it for painting.  I am really enjoying painting on the natural wood and keeping the wood grain as a part of the painting.

Here is a close up of the face so you can see the wood grain.

 

I also painted this sweet deer on a wood slice for my niece for Christmas.

I did a quick little sketch on paper.

And then I transferred it to the wood slice or “cookie” to paint.

I hope March is off to a great start for you.  It is raining here today, so I am getting lots of ‘catch-up” work done in the studio.

Have a wonderful, creative, and joyful day!  Janell
