Art Demo – Painting a Young Stag in Watercolour Part 2 & Final

Now I have established a basic foundation of raw sienna and burnt sienna washes with some cool greys, blues and greens for contrast I am going to focus on getting those eyes.

Click on the image to bring it up nice and big and you can see the stages it took to complete the eye.

To complete the face I continued with darkening colours and adding form which is show in the image below.

When I had finished I realised that his face was a bit too thin so I put some more flesh on his face to make him fuller by painting more raw sienna all along his cheeks from under his eyes down to his muzzle. I used my customary spatter to complete the painting.

  1. Hi Wazeau – thanks very much. If you want to look at it again I have now re-inserted the demo photos so that they will enlarge very big when you click on them. They weren’t working before!
