Lion Painting – Next Stage (Jason Morgan)

Here’s the latest update. I have done the under / tonal painting with just 1 acrylic colour – burnt sienna, although it might look a little dark on this photo, the highlights are where I have wiped the wet paint of with some tissue when it was drying.

This will just give me a rough plan to follow, just showing me the position of the darks and lights.

I might or might not, dig out my acrylics to continue with the underpainting as I did in my last demo – not decided yet

Lion Painting (drawing stage) Wildlife Art

Here is the latest update, the drawing has now been transfered to the canvas. I will probably add the tip of the lions tail coming back in to the canvas, just to mirroe the buffalo horn

Lion Painting – Wildlife Art – On my Easel

This year I want to challenge my art a bit more and not get stuck in to painting the standard African paintings and Tiger portraits, which are always in demand. This year I will be painting a lot more of what I would call REAL Africa. It’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, but one thing for sure is that they will reflect the true, life and death scenarios which are constantly occuring in the wild.

Here is the 1st in that series of paintings.

This is avery small little pencil / pen sketch, probably only about 5 inches wide. I’m just playing with placement / light against dark etc here and this is just one of a few small sketches.
