Lions


(Edit: December 23rd 2012.   Added a quinacridone gold wash to warm up the fur and extended the background.  Supposedly to improve it)

So James has got it into his head that I can make a fortune by painting wildlife paintings.  In the interest of marital harmony here is a lion.

The preliminary sketch.

The reference photo.

  1. Very cool! I've only done a painting of dogs before… animals are quite difficult with all their fur. This turned out great!!

  3. Thanks – I was rather pleased. The mountain lion one not so good however – I'm trying to decide whether to rework or start again.

    Just had a look at your paintings – they're fantastic!! I'm very impressed.
