This is the very first oil painting that I have every done. It is a painting of a lion in Africa. I choose a lion because lions are my favorite animals. The techniques that were used were lifting the paint. All the hair done on the mane was done by dipping a pallet knife in paint, pressing it against the canvas, and then lifting it up.
On the face, I took full advantage of the length of time that the oil painting gave me to work with the material.
I'm looking forward to have the chance to work with this medium more and more.
