Lion cubs reference photo

As I promised yesterday, here is the reference photo for the lion cubs painting. I was asked to paint a black background and make the cubs more colourful and dramatic, which is what I hope I achieved!

Lion cubs oil painting

24" x 18" oil on canvas

This was a nice change from the usual type of commission and I very much enjoyed painting these two. There was a challenge as I was requested to give the painting more colour and variety than the reference photograph - not the easiest thing to do but it was fun! Tomorrow I will share the original photograph for you to see the difference.

Website Down

Please note that has been down since yesterday. There seems to be no-one available at the hosting company today but hopefully it will be back up and running by Monday.

Dalmatian oil portrait - Ziggy

12" x 16" oil on canvas

This evening's painting is another lovely Dalmatian. This gorgeous boy lived a very long and much loved happy life. There is not much more we can hope for our dogs.
