coeur d alene

I got going on this last night and had to force myself to stop and now I'm at the "hmmm" stage. Thats when I set it on the piano and self critique it for days, then a revelation comes on and I apply a touch up to it. Sorry, this is how I paint. Just wanted to share this one with you before its done. I welcome any and all comments and suggestions. Keep in mind I'm not finished applying the last tiny hairs layer, so some of the definition is forthcoming. This was a challenge to toss this onto a 12 X 36 inch canvas. The photo is a close up rather than showing the entire painting, which there is not much left out. Orange colored sunset sky and thorny bush in the foreground. But I like it so far. Just a few touches of highlight and getting more definition in the face so it doesn't melt into the mane anymore, this lion is uncomfortable. Don't get to close.
