This lion cub is actually a test trial for size 22″×28″ canvas. As I mentioned before, 22″×28″ is proportioned to 11″×14″. So I drew the sketch with a 11″×14″ piece of paper and enlarged it onto a 22″×28″ canvas. But once I completed the pencil drawing, my toddler messed it up with crayons. So I had to clean it, let it dry and redrew some of the lines. It took a while. Then I said to myself I had to finish it so my parents couldn’t say that I always gave up halfway (long story).
The color layers slowly built up together, especially for background. I leave the brush strokes so the background is not totally blurry. I am not against blurry background. It just doesn’t fit my brush stroke habit.
After I finished this painting I installed it into a black floater frame.
It is now ready to hang. You can find this piece in my store.
I hope you enjoy this little lion cub. 😀
