Thanks for the great ref photos, Jean! :)

I have a feeling this ol' boy is going to be pretty popular. I noticed, before posting this, that Connie and Valri both did the lion. They pointed out that the second lion has left the scene in their pieces. Maybe they're down at the Lion's Club tipping a few with mine! :lol:

This is oil on 5x7 hardboard.
I posted a progression on my blog (http://deanos-den.blogspot.com/) if anyone is interested.

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking and commenting! :)

Lovely lazy lion. Like the tree branch overhead and the sun shining down.

Boy's night out! :lol: :lol:

Is there another painting beneath?
No painting underneath, Connie. What you're seeing is gesso applied with a palette knife. I left the palette knife ridges for texture beneath the paint.

Deano, love those thick strokes and that beautiful lion, and as long as they don't come to my neck of the woods they can ramble all night long :lol:

Hi Dean, great painting as usual. I went to your blog and enjoyed the visit immensely. I followed the link to DPW and got lost. Such welath of talented artists there!

Juicy, thick, scrumptious paint strokes! Nice:D

I like him snoozing in the hot sun - peacefully:D

I like that your lion left the security of his cave to soak up the sun, maybe after tipping a few??
great strokes,
