Autumn in the Parkland (30 by 44" pencil drawing)
The idea for this drawing came about during my first year living in Vermilion, AB. I was driving around myself one evening looking for some geese to hunt when I came across 3 mule deer bucks right at the edge of a road standing in a field. I immediately was inspired to create a drawing of this. In the drawing I turned one of the bucks into a doe; I figured it would make the drawing look a little better. The buck standing beside the doe still has some velvet stuck on his left antler. There's a flock of geese flying away in the top right hand corner of the drawing, maybe an indication of what I was searching for that night which ended up getting away from me. I really enjoyed creating this piece and to date it is my largest pencil drawing.
