So last week I started this lion. I used different photos plus documentaries of lions and so on... God I wish i had one in front of me ( behind bars : P ) so i can just paint him from life! It took me 3 hours when i started this one... and worked a bit on it today for like 30 min to do this and that.
I really love the result... and I love alla prima painting.... Searching for your voice... and appealing to people's taste to make a living is one hell of a decision hehe
Also how my figure pose is turning out. Just a detail. Should have taken a full photo!
You can also see.. that when painting the lion... the canvas shows. I need to experiment more and just get some work done and reach out there!
