"MORNING CALL" original watercolor painting by Dean Crouser. This painting measures approximately 10" tall by 13" wide. Dean had painted the background a year prior but was uncertain how to proceed with finishing the painting as far as a subject, etc. The artist felt that the idea would appear when it was ready, and now, a year later, he decided on a bugling elk. As the background had already been painted, Dean 'lifted' out the watercolor pigment of the elk shape resulting in almost white paper again below that area. From there he proceeded to paint a big bull elk bugling at first light. Sometimes these projects require a little extra time! Hope you enjoy "Morning Call".
