Purple Deer 20


Purple Deer, 9x12, oil on linen

Today's image is from a photo I took outside my office window last spring. I work on the old Lowry AFB in the city of Denver. We have a herd of mule deer that honor us with their presence from time to time. This painting was done using the complements purple and yellow. The scene lent itself to those colors naturally because of the dried grasses and the deer being in the shade of our building. She came right up to the window to see what I was doing.

Thanks Tam! Good to see you again. I love you comments today. It was a thoughtful painting. I had more time to work on it.
Ruth, it is great fun to play around with color theories from time to time. Keeps things fresh.
