I'm embracing Mark's 'no-rules' policy and posting this painting I did of a lion pride.
2' x 4' on acrylic on canvas. I've always had a thing for drawing & painting animals and wildlife since I was a kid. I was bolstered to share this by several fine examples in the Forum Gallery of others who apparently share my love for animals. ( Kingston, Drawmyface and Sue's Deutscher - beautiful paintings!!) Not much blending going on here as the acrylics dry soooo fast. Good inadvertent practice i suppose for DMP methodology. :-)
If any are interested, the lions are largely done from memory and old drawing references, the exception being the large male. I took his photo at the Calgary Zoo. The savannah and bg trees are also just painted without reference from my 'idea' of what they should look like.
I wanted the pride to appear as if they are just moving out of the shade to track down their next meal.
A friend of mine said " you wouldn't want to be whatever it is they're looking at."
made me laugh.
anyway - enjoy,
