White tailed deer, pastels on wood panel frame
I wanted to try put painting pastels on wood. It was very nice to paint on, very nice tooth. I didn’t want to cover up all the wood so I left the wood as if it were the trees. In the spring I will stain the wood darker and then add a thick epoxy resin to the whole project, just to try it out. The board is a bit pricey, this small one of 8″ x 10″ was around $9. The bigger ones are $30 +. Just an experiment.
