Red Stag Goldfinches Painting by Wildlife Artist Richard Whittlestone

Red Stag and Goldfinches

A life-size portrait of a red stag and a charm of goldfinches, on a backdrop of muted Hookers Green. I originally thought I'd paint two or three goldfinches but each time I completed what I thought was the last, the picture seemed to ask for another one!  Obviously odd numbers work best in paintings but in this case, eight seems about right.
