Deer in Richmond Park wip day 4

I'm still chipping away at this. The gremlins have been out to get me the past couple of days. Its a miracle I still have a working camera after yesterday, I managed to not notice it following me out of the car, shutting the door on the strap. My husband was alerted by an on-looker that the camera was hanging out of the door, by which time he'd dragged it across the forecourt of the petrol station. Today I've managed to knock my daylight easel lamp off my easel onto an opened draw, smashing the lamp....I've started to work in the texture of the fur, I'm still mainly using hard pastels, and getting some finer detail with a purple tinted charcoal pencil.

Nice work so far Sarah! Love the composition and color you have to this piece.

Thanks, I've finished now, I must admit I'm so-so about the result. I think I've been at it too long!
