Two Lions

I finally got round to doing a painting from the many photos we took at the zoo last week - I chose this one as we spent some time watching these two lions, nuzzling and licking each other - it was lovely to watch although it felt a little like we were imposing on a rather tender moment!!  after not painting for a while this was a bit of a practice piece to get me back into the flow but Gary really likes it and I've had some lovely comments from facebook friends - even Jean Haines which is always a confidence boost !!  Still not convinced myself whether I like the way I've painted it although I like the expressions I've captured -  but then we are our own worst critics aren't we?

  1. wow!..beautiful paintings Sharon. Glad you follow my blog, as it has meant I get to see your lovely paintings.

  2. I just read on facebook you wasn't sure about sharing this painting. I'm so glad you did! It's magnificent! (thank you for your warm, welcoming message, by the way)

  3. I am so pleased you have posted it, watching it come together when you painted it I knew it was going to be good, and it really takes me back to when we were stood watching them x

  4. Hello Sharon:) They are beautiful and in a way cute:) The eyes are amazing. I think you did a great job here!

  5. I'm a bit late in finding these which I reckon you already know what I think of them Sharon, but so that everyone else will know.....BRILLIANT.

    Kind Regards
