Artist's Description

You know those perfect days when you go for a walk in the countryside with a good companion, and you’re rambling along, mostly in silence, glad to be alive, happy listening to the birdsong; occasssionly commenting on the buds showing on the trees or some unidentifiable sound, but not wishing to disturb the peace. Then your companion suddenly stops and whispers urgently: –
Sshh – keep still!
So you look where they’re looking and see a group of deer just visible in the undergrowth. The deer turn to look at you, and you stand in awe, transfixed, knowing that in a second, they will quickly and silently move off out of sight.

This painting was inspired by one of those days walking on the Quantocks in Somerset.

DS and Winsor & Newton Artist’s Quality watercolour paint and ink. (If you’re watching Janis – you’ll see that I did practice with my bamboo pen – although I did find that I quickly reverted to my tool of choice which is the handle of a worn out rigger brush!)
