she dreamt a deer was always near
I watched Mindy Lacefield's art video
I felt inspired to learn from what she shared
I love how she layers paints
this piece began without a sketch
simply a brush, acrylics and lots of layers
I love the freedom of her style
Thank you Mindy!

Tammie, I love this painting!ReplyDelete
wow this is lovely!ReplyDelete
It's lovely to see the more expressive side of you, Tammie! The deer looks especially beautiful... :)ReplyDelete
It was fun to create this piece. To take paint and layer and layer with colors that are a bit different for me. I enjoyed the experience very much.ReplyDelete
Thank you for your supportive messages!
light to you,
This is very cool, oh I love the layers too, and all the fabulous colors. be well.ReplyDelete
I am going to have to check this out. Good to see you back at PPF with the big eyes and sweet faces.ReplyDelete
Lovely painting, Tammie. We have deer in our yard almost every day, but very few have antlers. We have watched 2 does with fawns lately.ReplyDelete
OOOH Tammie this is gorgeous! I must admit I had a flashback to the Harry Potter movie with the bounding deer... so sweet & I love the quizzical look on the deers face & the love on the girls :)ReplyDelete
What a beautiful painting and such a sweet face. Love the deer. Great job. Happy PPF!ReplyDelete
Ahhhh I love this painting!!! Her face is so pretty!!!ReplyDelete

Great use of layering textures and colours. Love those blue eyes!ReplyDelete
Both the eyes of the deer and the gilr are so soulful. I like this piece. HAPPY PPF!ReplyDelete
Great Layers Tammie! Will have to check the vid. I took a class with Serena Barton who also does portraits without a sketch. Challenging!ReplyDelete
