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.
