Hi Peeps I ve just done this for the last WDE using pict by Justjean

When I saw the pictures the lion and the dog reminded me of a painting 1794 by Nicolas Maréchal a nice true love story:) with a sad ending :crying: due to human mistake .

Great painting Robert as usual, and you got a lot of detail for the size of the piece, was this from a real photo?

Wow, Robbie. So much detail in such a small painting. Really super watercolour. Love that sleepy-looking lion. He looks really cuddly.

I'm always in awe with anyone that does watercolor! You done a wonderful job on this Robert! I love the tenderness of the lion depicted here, as well as the trusting German Shepard!

this painting makes me really look to see if the dog's eyes are telling me it is really safe to sit beside a sleeping lion.......good job, I think the dog is smart to keep his eyes open though.....can love really tame the wild beast?
