The Lion

Watercolour. 32cm x 33cm. Mounted with cellophane.
For Sale at the Tandridge Art Society Exhibition

Wildlife portraits are very special indeed. This one of the lion is no exception. The colour washes are subtle and I made use of the yellow/gold and purple combinations. I always try to enhance colour when I am painting. It does not mean that a painting has to be garish - one can still create a wonderfully harmonious balance using an unusual palette. I am secretly joined at the hip to winsor violet.


  1. I think this is stunning. My husband walked by as I was looking over your blog and he really liked your work too. Very nice touch with the brush!

  2. Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback Margaret. I am working on some other wildlife paintings in oil and acrylic so hopefully I will have some work to post in the near future. You look very glamorous by the way.
