“Cleaning Wounds”

When I photographed the lion in this painting so many years ago now I wasn’t expecting it to turn into such an emotional piece for me, its been quite a difficult project for so many reasons some personal and some art related. But the feedback from the work in progress photos over on my instagram have been especially inspiring and I’m so glad he’s finished. I have absolutely loved painting these big cats and I can’t wait to start my next piece.

Finished the portrait of this lovely lady, she was such a fabulous poser which made photographing her a breeze! Photographing the artwork was actually a lot harder… Anyway I really hope you like this portrait. The rest of the course on how to draw her will be rolled out slowly over the next week or so, I’m hoping it’ll give you all time to give it ago and give me time to answer any questions!
