male red deer painting by Kathrin Guenther, acrylic painting, wildlife art

A very majestic stag

One autumn morning we were on the road early. It is the same road we always go, but this morning was different. The narrow country road got all of a sudden a lot tighter. A red deer male came bouncing out of the shadows of a hedgerow and very nearly ended up in the side of our car! Thankfully both car and the red deer escaped unharmed. But this moment left me buzzing with amazement for days. It was my first local encounter with any deer and I live here for over 20 years. I came home and started this painting the very same day.
