“A Father’s Love” is an exquisite representation captured by artist Melody using the medium of oil on paper. The artist impeccably portrays the elusive beauty of an Exmoor red stag amidst enchanting moorland surroundings. With astonishing precision and delicate brushwork, Melody brings to life the magnificent creature—the epitome of strength, grace, and elegance. Standing tall with majestic antlers reaching towards the heavens, this noble creature exudes an aura of regality. Embedded within the artwork is a narrative of paternal care as the stag stands protectively, exuding warmth and tenderness. Through this masterful artwork, Melody beautifully encapsulates the essence of a father’s nurturing and unwavering love for his young.

These magnificent animals roam wild on Exmoor and in the rutting season, around October, can be see with herds of deer of 50 to 100.  They are an inspiration to paint and we may spend hours watching and photographing them prior to painting.
