Lion WIP

I just wanted to show that I am still painting.  This is a 5x5 inch WIP.  I am just laying in the initial washes at this point.  I will try to update again this weekend.

Love him!! Looking forward to seeing the final result. I love the texture you've created in his fur already!

Thanks so much Julia, Barbra, Deb & Linda. Julia I went to your blog and your work is excellent and inspiring. Barbra I think that most of my work is spent on choosing the perfect pose to paint. Deb I see that you have become the "rusty queen". Great work. Linda, I am loving your landscape work. Good stuff! I appreciate you all.

This is looking great - love the colors you used to get that golden brown granulation which works so well!

Thanks Rhonda - the color is Goethite (DS) and it works great on rocks too.
