Lion King -Completed for Now

The Lion King : Canadian Parliament Building Carving
My Lion King, a painting of a stone carving of the Parliament Building in Ottawa, Canada, is finished for now.  It was a very enjoyable painting to work on. It's on Fabriano Artistico 140 lb CP and is approx. 14.5 X 14.5 before matting and framing.

I like it ( I don't say that very often) and I hope that you do too:-)

  3. This lion king seems to be moving out of the painting towards me - great look and color and glad to know he's harmless :)

    1. Well, so far, he's been harmless, but I would not cross him too much:-) Thank you, Rhonda, for your support!

    1. I would not want to argue with him either, Irina:-)
      This type of painting was great for me after the painterly, more intuitive and colorful coconuts; I now need to go back to something less "precise" as you say.
      Take care, Irina, and thank you for stopping by.

    1. Thank you, Jane. Sometimes I think that I experiment too much instead of "producing" :-)
