Description

Majestic Wanderer - Acrylic on Canvas
This large portrait, depicting a lion catching the first light as it emerges from the darkness of his den was painstakingly painted, hair by hair.
My aim was to capture the lion both simultaneously majestic and fierce. I studied a lot of lions in the lead up to this piece in order to find out more about their nature and physicality.
I hope when people look at it, they consider the beauty of these misunderstood creatures that once roamed the earth but are now becoming close to endangered due to loss of habitat, loss of prey and humans hunting them for sport.
