Lion Painting – latest under painting update

Here is the latest update of the Lion painting, I have now covered most of the canvas in paint, just the mouth / nose area to do then I will start to refine the whole painting.

Hope your enjoying the progress so far 🙂

New Lion Painting – begining the oils

After the tonal under-painting has dried it’s is time to start the oil painting stage. as most of you are familiar with I will be using W&N Alkyd oil paints from this stage to the end. I really think they are better than standard oils – they dry by the next day so I have the option to build layers up quite quickly 🙂

I like to start painting the eyes very early on in most of my paintings, it gives me the feeling that I have company when I paint plus I like to get the eyes right when I am nice and fresh, if the eyes don’t work then the rest of the painting will be worthless.
