Base painting for large deer

Saturday night I managed to get the big deer painted. I used a transparent brown textile paint and used varying amounts of textile medium (Jacquard; colorless extender) to lighten the color. I plan on painting brush stroke hairs over the majority of the deer similar to the way the animals are painted in the hunting paintings, but I will probably tackle the little deer first and come back to details after.

    What is your working surface? Floor or table? Are you painting cotton broadcloth?

  5. Jojo, I am working on a large table that is probably close to 5 feet square. I am painting on Kona solid fabric by Kaufmann, it is ivory.
