Mule Deer Buck - Acrylic Wildlife Animal Painting on Board by Daily Painter Pat Koscienski


Mule Deer Buck
12" x 16"
Acrylic on Board
This painting was done from a photograph posted on Gary Keimig's Wilderness Art Challenge Blogspot. I did "flip" Gary's photograph so the deer is walking from left to right in my painting.
The mule deer are named for their unusually large ears, but they resemble mules in no other way. It was interesting to do research and read about the differences between a mule deer and a whitetail deer. The "muleys" are less adaptable and remain more of a wilderness species. Mule deer seldom raise their shorter, ropelike tails, which are dull white with black tips. And, the main beams of their antlers each branch into two beams, each then branching again. There are a lot more differences, but too many to name them all in this blogspot. However, enjoy the painting and be sure to visit Gary's blogspot for more paintings of the mule deer.

Willow Park - Acrylic Representational Impressionistic Plein Air Landscape by Pennsylvania Daily Painter Pat Koscienski

Willow Park
12" x 6"
Acrylic on canvas
SOLD
This painting was started plein aire in Willow Park, Camp Hill, PA and finished in the studio from a reference photo that I took at that time. There wasn't much sun, so when it did peak its head, I snapped quickly and was able to catch the only 2 seconds of sun that shined that day. This painting will be showing at Art & Soul Gallery on Friday where I will be demonstrating some of the techniques of plein aire painting. If in the area, drop in and say HI and look around the gallery. It is located on the 2nd floor of the West Shore Farmer's Market at 900 Market Street in Lemoyne, PA. I will be there approximately from 10:00 to 2:00. If you have any questions or wish to purchase this painting, contact Pat at patsfineart@hotmail.com or stop in to Art & Soul Gallery.

One More To Go - Acrylic Impressionistic Representational Painting of Strawberry and Mouse by Pennsylvania Daily Painter Pat Koscienski

One More To Go
12" x 12"
Acrylic on Canvas
SOLD
This painting was done for Lela Stankovic's Paint and Draw Together Challenge to paint texture and to choose the best possible title for the painting. We were also challenged to imagine where the 2nd strawberry went. I guess I didn't leave too much to the imagination with that one. Although I posted this, I still have work to do on the mouse. The strawberry is painted bigger than life, but I wanted it to be the focal point of the painting.
