Sambar deer painting by David Young


  Oil painting by David William Young.

Size  40’’ X 36’’

In the foothills of the Himalayas, below the old British Hill Station of Nainatal, is the National Park named after Jim Corbett. Known for his prowess in shooting Leopards and Tigers, he swung the other way and became instrumental in encouraging the conservation of the flora and fauna of this beautiful part of the world.

I was lucky enough to visit this area while riding through the foothills on my way to Nainital and found far more pleasure observing the huge variety of birds and lesser mammals than the ‘sought after’ Tiger so avidly hunted by camera wielding tourists and their tour guides.

As well as the wildlife, the geography and vegetation fascinated me. In a dried up river bed or nullah, I came across this magnificent Sambar Deer sitting majestically atop the bank of the nullah, framed wonderfully against the parched colours of the trees and undergrowth behind.

I am really happy with this painting because it has a harmony of colour with the greys and yelow/greens plus a haunting presence with the deer.
