African Lion Painting
Since I work only off my own photographs naturally one of my favortie places to hang out zoo. I create a lot of African Wildlife Art and so since I can take multiple trips to Africa my local zoos are the best option.
On this particular trip I was thrilled to see that the lion were up and active as most days they are dozing, especially the males. But today he was pacing and roaring and providing me with so much reference material that I'm sure several lion paintings will be done of this magnificent animal.
The big cats have such an intense focus and stare. A person can't help but to be mesmerized by those golden eyes. I'm just grateful they weren't focused on me. At any rate that's where the title for this lion painting came from. Intensity. His great intense focus.
The original lion painting was a watercolor pencil painting done on suede board.
