Had a lot of fun with this one. It took a while to get her expression just right. I am always fascinated with the cat family because I love their faces. It's great when you see an expression and as Tim Gunn says, "Make it work!"
I usually paint small feline pets, but this is the real thing as far as cats go. My husband loves to watch the animal shows on TV and I saw this lion in passing. I had to paint one like her.
