Fallow deer in Richmond Park

Back in the Autumn I went to up to one of my favourite places, Richmond Park with the hope to photograph the rutting deer. I unfortunately didn't catch them in action, however all the deer were looking magnificent hoping to impress the ladies!
This is a small pastel painting of a fallow deer, these guys are much shyer then the red deer, often hiding in the wooded areas of the park. In October however, all the deer get much braver coming out into open to rut, which gave me lots of great opportunities to get photos of this usually timid deer.
