New Lion Painting Tutorial – Art on my Easel

This is the latest Lion painting on my easel.

The 1st stage below shows my pencil drawing, it’s very simply done using just a regular graphite pencil, I have sealed the drawing to the canvas using W&N permanent fixative spray.

In the 2nd stage below I have toned the canvas with a thin coat of Acrylic Burnt Sienna, then when it had dried (approx 1 hr) I painted over the main lines, once again using Burnt Sienna Acrylic paint. I will use this loosely as my tonal map, helping me to easily see my lights and darks.
