In the forum I belong to - Painting Friends - Cindi posted a photo we could all use as a basis for a painting.
The photo was taken in the Wildlife Animal Park in San Diego.
This series will follow how I made the painting, step by step.
I hope you enjoy it.
First off, a drawing, complete with masking (the blue line) to stop any paint running onto the lion when I paint the rocks in a loose and runny fashion.
Then I paint the under wash for the rocks, using various colours to capture the feeling of the coloured rock.
