Dear wearing a hat and fur.



I’ve been working on this painting off and on for five months. It’s finished

It is inspired by an old Rembrandt portrait painting:….._a_Fur_Cap.JPG

It was a painting I did for the ‘Magic Box’ a self guided digital painting workshop. I lost how much time I spent on this painting, I think around 20+ hours. It was very challenging but I learned so much from doing this project.

  1. Aha! the deer looks quite distinguished and wise. Amazing what the perfect hat and coat can do!

  2. It’s beautiful… you did a superb work! Rembrandt would be proud! It is a new character? Have a lovely day :-)c

    • Thank you so much, Giovannoni. Rembrandt is one of my favorite artists. I haven’t given him a name, but i have have envisioned him as a well off person in a position of power.

      • It brings to my memory the Norse sagas….
        Cernunnos, the Celtic god of fertility, animal and wildlife…
        More power than that, isn’t possible 🙂 you’re right, a great choice for a character above the simple human nature (poor and foolish, that alone is capable of destroying the beauty of our planet).
        Sorry… I got carried away by a fit of rage… :-)claudine

  3. Very interesting contrast, and nice job with the textures.
