Lion (Ethiopia)

I have started to work on a series on national animals. This is the first one finished, and it stands for Ethiopia (national animal lion). Watercolors on hot pressed arches.

Absolutely brilliant - so sharp and cleanly painted! Love the illustrated legs.

Oh my! This is the most beautiful lion I have ever seen. What a beautiful mane and I love the landscape on his feet and legs.

Re: Lion (Ethiopia)

Wonderful illustrative quality. I like the landscape continuing through the legs. Reminds me of illustrators from the past: Bob Peak and Bernie Fuchs.
