The Majestic Red Deer Stag is one of my favourite creatures - the striking focal point of this artwork, with it's impressive antlers adorned with jewels and birds. With thistle, acorns, poppies and pines, this piece has a definite Scottish feel, inspired by the varied and beautiful nature of the country. I wanted to add a touch of Gothic beauty with the inclusion of stark Oak Tree silhouettes and of course the Owl Skulls. Using my preferred traditional method of ink pen on paper, I wanted to include much detail and ornament in this illustration, to compliment the depicted wonders of the natural world. My hope is that the viewer is drawn into the artwork's composition, enjoying the revelation of more details than they may have first expected. Following my hand drawing in ink, I scanned the illustration in at high resolution and added colour by digitally painting. I then repeated elements of my Ink Drawing, to create the detailed pattern of the background, adding an overall Psychedelic feel to the work.
The print is a digital reproduction using vibrant Chrome HD Inks for stunning detail and a very rich depth of tone - Printed onto a heavyweight, 100% cotton smooth fine art paper with a natural creamy off-white shade, fine velvet surface and luxurious feel.
