Brothers

As 2016 is quickly coming to a close, I decided it’s now or never: Let’s paint one more piece!

Now after a 3 1/2 day marathon of painting, I am happy to report that I can add “Brothers” to my collection. The painting is based on a picture I took about two years ago in Phinda, SA. The two young lions looked extremely elegant when they slowly made their way down the steep dam. I planned to turn that shot into a painting for a long time. Happy it finally happened!

One thought on “Brothers

  1. It’s so interesting how you used black & white for the lion on the left and the background on the right and color for the lion on the right and the background of the left. It’s almost like a diptych but all on one canvas. The musculature and movement really come through too. I bet they are amazing to see full size!
