Deer in the Shadows - A Work in Progress

This morning as I was going over to my friend Heather's house to drop off her Christmas gifts now that she was back home from celebrating the holiday with her family in Toronto.

I glanced at the lake as I was driving by and at the edge was a doe with last year's fawn standing with her deciding if they were going to cross the ice covered lake.

I stopped the car and quickly took a photograph before opening the door and getting out just in case I spooked the deer and they disappeared before I could get closer.

It was a good thing that I did because as soon as I got out of the car she spotted me and that is exactly what happened. So it is a good thing I listen to the voices in my head some of the time.

I got back into the car and visited with Heather for a while before returning home and doing this little sketch.

I will post this piece at a later date once I have taken the time to develop the sketch and transfer it onto either watercolour paper or a canvas.
