Bella, I am truly amazed at this .... it even resembles a stag!  ;D   I really do have to go back and do those lessons on mountains...and trees....  :2funny:

Val, congratulations! In my opinion, do not touch the belly, just a bit of darkening on the antlers. You did it!  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:
I am still doing mine!  :sweat: Doina

Doina, just don't ask how many layers there are on the stag!  :o He must have changed colour 6 or 7 times!  :faint:
Thanks for your comment.....I couldn't get anymore colour out of the belly, so that means you must have been right!  ;D

Lynn I've got a way to go before I'm even close to being a wildlife artist. I thank you for your confidence in me.  :1hug:

I can't wait until I see yours Jani, it's coming...maybe not tomorrow...next month would be ok!  ::)    >:D

C. you are always such a boost to the self confidence. I have colours here that have no name!  :heeha:

Dennis....I think I must now send you that hat. I did promise you a new hat if you could make me paint beautiful pictures like you. Not quite as good as yours.....but I'm getting closer...at least within 2 eons....  :whistle:

Thanks so much Tania, I hope we'll be seeing some paintings from you soon?!  ??? :)
Cheers, Val

Val, excellent job on the stag! I also love your mountains in the background. They are very beautiful.

Thanks much Mark. I guess it's just me... I think I may have put a few too many 'snow' marks in, never know when to stop!  :tongue: Live and learn.  ::)

I must say Jenny, this one had me going!  :D Underneath that brown pelt...lies the coat of many colours!  ;D Still not sure how I ended up with that colour, but it worked ok. Sometimes I'm so lucky you'd think I was Irish!  :2funny:

Just waiting on the template for the next one.......  :heeha:
Cheers, Val

Jenny and Val. I`m really impressed with their painting along. I tried to keep up but only managed to destroy the image. Here I finally finished.

Harald, I love the "softness" of your painting. You did a fabulous job on the stag!
