Watercolor painting of a buck with stormy skies in the background by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Dark Storm and Buck

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 12″h x 16″w, 2004.

I was hiking in the Sweetwater Mountains near Bridgeport, California when I came upon this meadow. It was autumn and the aspen were in full autumn glory and a dark stormy sky was looming in the distance. It was an incredible contrast between bright yellow and dark blue, and it made an impressive scene. I included this hearty Mule Deer buck ambling through the meadow to add a focal point.
