This is the painting I have been working on forever it seems like! This is only as much as would fit in my scanner. The original is 11X15. I will send along a scan of the slide of the whole thing next. This scan is better with respect to color and detail though. This painting was such a challenge for me with respect to the landscape and background. Tell me what you think! I am happy with the outcome but welcome comments for future paintings. (got another African one in progress now ) Its SO GOOD to have Wetcanvas back!!!! Hope everyone finds us again soon!

I've already seen the slide you presented and I really like what I see here in this photo. Yes, you should be pleased with the outcome. It's very good!

Don't worry, its gonna be all right....

I must make a piece of art everyday for my own well being.

Hi Barb,
I looked at the other one before I saw this one. I think it's good as is, but as for suggestions: My style would be to exaggerate the darks and lights to get a stronger sense of bright sunlight. Make the darks much warmer and darker, using at least some violet, and add touches of very bright, pale yellows and oranges in strategic places, particularly on her body.

Still nice like it is.

Thanks for the encouragement everyone, and Billy thanks for your suggestions. I'll keep those in mind for next time. I have other lion photos to work from but for the time being have moved onto another African critter! The environmental challenge in this upcoming painting is tall grasses! I am getting lost in stripes!
