Wow! Awesome paintings and they must have such impact, seeing them in real life, with them being such a large size.

Love these, and echo others in that they must be gorgeous in person.
Did you paint these from a reference photo or a live specimen? Either way, how was the lighting done?

Amazing and breathtaking, both! Very dramatic and realistic at the same time.

Thank you all for your kind comments.
I use reference photos - either found or taken by me - and manipulate them in photoshop until I get the composition and lighting I want. Then it's just a matter of duplicating the image in oil on canvas.

Outstanding - love the dramatic lighting and the perfectionist approach!:)
