This painting is a compilation of 2 photographs taken by Twitter personality MiraclesGoddess (also known as JoAnn Skywatcher). I absolutely love her amazing nature shots so with her permission I attempted to paint the deer picture that she took http://twitpic.com/f494a and I combined it with her misty mountain picture http://twitpic.com/f355c
As usual, I am not satisfied with the results but attempting this painting (and failing) has really ticked me off. I love nature and I love beautiful landscapes. It really annoys me that I can't paint the subjects that I love to my satisfaction. I have 351 paintings to go and by the end of my art project I WILL be able to paint landscapes and animals that I can be proud of.
So be prepared for a LOT of ugly paintings :)
