Lion Country....


Still hooked on Africa at the moment, amongst other things, must be something to do with the yearning to go back there...

.... After doing an initial sketch of this Lion I went onto a larger version on a half sheet.

wetting some areas then dropping in some colour for an initial wash, then some extra touches of colour in a few areas as the under wash was drying......

I decided not to sketch this one out as I paint too much within the lines when I do...
The problems that arise are when you don't get the 2nd eye in the right place, which is why he hasn't got one at the moment lol. I had to wash it away as it just wasn’t looking right...It will be added later though....

I'm letting this sit for a little while though as I have some ideas for it and need to think on if it will work or not....
