Large (ish) big cat in a loose style



Once again inspired by Jean Haines, but I know the report card should probably read 'must try harder' The difficulty is getting the balance between looseness and a satisfying painting. Often I find I like my piece of test paper on which I check my colours better! Perhaps I am an abstract painter on some level!

I love the lion. This is what I love about a finished water painting - all the splotches of color, the layering, the suggestions.

Thanks so Much DQ I have visited your blog again, and I will settle down and read more! Just keep getting the call of the blank watercolor paper...! :-)
