This is done with the shredded fabric technique, which I learned from Lenore Crawford. This is an impressionistic portrayal of a lily pond that is being visited by three deer: a doe and two bucks.
I love this style. Have you seen the work done by Noriko Endo? I have her book Confetti Naturescapes. I have been saving scraps for this. Someday. I love the aspen and the deer.
