(This has been cross posted to the Animal and Wildlife forum)
My youngest son went to stay at his Nanna's overnight so I thought it would be a great opportunity to get painting.
So I started this yesterday afternoon and took progress photos along the way, and I managed to finish it today before he came home.
I am loving painting kitties at the moment, I figured I'd recently painted a Jaguar and then a Tiger so why not try a Lion.
I liked this photo from the Reference Library (thank you whoever uploaded it!) ...
I decided not to include the background and chose a dark grey paper to work on.
This project was 8x10 inches with pastel pencils on Canson.
Here are my progress photos from start to finish ....

Thank you so much everyone! Yes Susan I got as much sleep as an 8 month pregnant woman gets, lol! It was really more of a do a bit here, do a bit there project as I still had my eldest son home with me, although I must admit it becomes easier to paint as they get older. Thanks again, hope to share something new again soon!
