Uncle has been created with a variety of mediums. The intial painting was set out with liquid charcoal paint. I then used a combination of stick charcoals, pastels and gouche paint. The background is not totally black - it is a combination of very dark blues and purples to give the painting much more atmosphere and depth. Overall dimensions when in card mount are 14 x 16 inches. Uncle was painted from a lovely reference photo by wildlife photographer Tazi Brown who witnessed this young male lion watching his female pack members handle the youngsters and decided he would join in :)
NB. the photos above are a mock up of how the painting could look framed in a room setting. Mother's Pride will be supplied unframed but in a card mount.
