Brand New Lion Painting on the Easel

I’ve just started to paint this magnificent African lion. The photo below shows the very 1st stage – drawing the Lion on the canvas. I also toned the canvas with Burnt Sienna, just to eliminate the stark whiteness.


I always like to have company when I paint, so more often than not, I block in the eyes 1st. Here I have also continued with the face a little, just blocking in very basic tones.

Hope you like him so far šŸ˜‰
