Two Versions of Stags

Stag with Pomegranate, 70×60cm, 2013

Demon with a Pitcher, 80×60cm, 2013

I used the same model and pose for these paintings. On the first one as you can see I followed strictly what I saw. On the other I modified the proportions of the body to achieve a stranger effect.

A pencil study for the narrowed body, accenting the bulk

An additional study of a Stag's head.
It takes a few attempts to establish the
right rhythm of spikes on the antlers
