Barcud and Oumie
Great stuff. To be self taught, is not easy. You must learn all the tricks of the trade. And it's not always easy.
Art is what you feel, not what you are.

Well after many many attempts I have at last got this pic posted (forgot how). I have not done many wildlife paintings in the past year so it was wonderfull to paint this lion. I have also not been on the forum much over the past year or so - must say some lovely art works have been posted. Oumie, Barcud, jenismithies, Moose and Nico to name a few - great art works!!! :clap: :clap:

Just caught up with this thread after waaaaay too long :redface: Loving it all over again! Nice work everybody and so much good stuff like everyone has said. :clap: :clap:

Painter ....U know I have a bit of a soft spot for lions but that is a really moving painting. I would love to see it up close. U really got him. He looks like he is ruling whatever room he currently resides in :D :clap:

I will def post pics when my next piece is finished. It has been a very very stop /start affair but is almost done........
