This is my first time doing the Art Journal Journey challenge but the 'Into the woods' prompt really spoke to me and without any plan I simply started painting. It was wonderfully therapeutic and I even love the end result. 

After painting the base (the forest) I added my sketch of the deer from a couple of weeks ago and painted it over in black to just keep the shape of it, a few birds and if you look really close you'll even find some ants and worms. 

I think this one deserves to be printed and framed.
