So for those of you that follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’ll have seen the in progress photos of my Lioness painting. This was a fun one to paint, started it on Wednesday evening and finished it this evening.
Prints are available here
The reference photo came from Janruss over at paint my photo
My second to last stage, the work I’d completed by Saturday evening. By this point I’d got most of my layers and colours in and I’d also removed the masking fluid so I could start evening out some of the areas that needed it.
So here’s the finished thing. Final shadows and highlights were added as necessary, as well as more being done to the ear.
- Paint brushes – 1″ Oval wash and a 6 Filbert (both Daler Rowney) and also a number 3 round
- Koi watercolours from the pocket field sketch box
- Paper – Daler Rowney Aquafine 12 x 9 inches 140lbs cold pressed.
- Masking fluid and masking fluid brushes.
