Lion II

In this stage of the lion painting, I have painted the ledge upon which he was sleeping a sandy colour and also put in some shadows behind him - and a few on the rocks, some for shadow and one for a cave I intend to put in.

The original photo did not have the lion on a ledge, or have a cave behind him.. but I am not trying to reproduce the photo, I am trying to produce a painting. So I add some inventions of my own, to give the painting more of an atmosphere.


  1. I can't wait to see his regal self!!

  2. I really like the vertical elements that you have put in. This is looking very, very good.

  3. Thank you both. xx
    I hope you will like the finished painting, which has some much stronger shadows in it :)

  4. It's fun following your process, not just your painting process, but your thinking as well. Thanks.

  5. Glad you are enjoying the process Judy - and if you can follow how I think, write and tell hubby, eh? :lol:
