I use a reference photo and try my best to make the painting look like it. :)

I think your lion painting is great work for one of your first watercolours - just keep practicing and you'll keep improving too. It's not the easiest of media, but once you get the hang of it, you can achieve so many different effects. It's great fun!

Wow, watercolors?? I have a hard enough time getting this much detail with just oil paints or pastels.

You really nailed the eyes and the wrinkles on the face (those are the details I have the hardest time with, that and the mane).

As a fellow artist and lion lover, I salute you! *Salutes*

Why, thank you very much! I really appreciate your kind comment. ^^
One great thing about watercolours, is that you can utilize the grain of the paper to achieve different structures and effects without too much effort; like using a dry brush to create a sense of fur. That comes in handy when painting motifs like this one.

Toriyama-Kino-90 Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2010
No problem, it was a pleasure! ^_^

That's true. What kind of paper did you use in this case?

Again, I have to say I am completely floored by your work.

:iconcamillamalcus:
CamillaMalcus Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2010   Traditional Artist
Hm.. I can't remember the exact brand I used for this particular painting, but I always use cold-pressed, medium grained watercolour papers. It was probably Daler-Rowney's "Langton", Cartiera Magnani's "Toscana" or "Bockingford" from St. Cuthberts Mill. Those are the ones I use the most. (All 300 grams/m2.)

Thank you again, it means a lot! ^^
