The original painting was inspired following an early morning walk in the Scottish borders on a crisp February morning, having earlier watched blackcock lekking in the adjacent valley. Although I wasn’t fortunate to see any deer that morning, I was captivated by the light on the hillside vegetation, and knew it would be a perfect setting for a stag. In order to make the work as authentic as possible, the lighting on the stag was modelled using reference of the many sheep I saw during my walk.
