Lioness in acrylics

I really enjoyed painting this one.  I started off with a burnt sienna undercoat, blocked in the lioness, painted in the black background and then the finished the by painting in the finer details of the lioness.  Also used a bit of medium to thin the paint for the finer details mainly because the water was diluting the paint a bit too much.  I am really pleased with the final painting.

Lioness measures 8 x 8 inches and is painted on Raymar Canvas Panel.

Many thanks to Gary Jones for the reference photo.
