“Mule Deer in Aspen” framed print by Robert Bateman

Professionally framed Robert Bateman print 35″ x 30′.  “I wanted to convey this landscape using large, empty white spaces that darken toward
the top, while the dark trees are modulating in the opposite direction. Technically,
I found this a particular challenge because I am so used to working with opaque paint,
and I can paint light or pale lines over already painted dark areas. But working here
with pencil, I had to do all my shading in between the light twigs.”Robert Bateman.   Secondary market price for print only: $175 – $795.
