Roe Deer in the depth of the Greta valley winter.

This painting was a test-bed for a range of paints, and below is the start of the final one, in ChromaColour

Unfortunately, the final one didn't survive the storage in the attic - the watercolour board warped badly - so it's been destroyed. I may well re-visit the subject though, using acrylics on aluminium.
