Lion Queen by Mararda Lion Queen by Mararda
Sennelier tube watercolour of a crouching African lioness.
This is based on a photograph from the book 'In the Lion's Den.

This photograph of the painting has been taken in artificial light; I will take one in natural light.'

LOVELY USE OF AMBIENT COLOR AND SKILLFUL APPLICATION
OF SHADING AND MIXING OF COLORS, MAKES IT ALMOST LIKE VIEWING AND POLAROID TAKEN FROM A JEEP ON THE MASAI MARA.

GORGEOUS WORK!!

THIS IS BY FAR ONE OF THE BEST IMAGES OF WILDLIFE DONE AS ART I'VE SEEN IN A WHILE, IT HONESTLY GIVES ME THE FEEL OF THE ITINERANT LIFE ON THE SERENGETI, ANY BETTER AND I WOULD SIMPLY SAY "DON'T MAKE ANY SUDDEN SOUNDS!!"

THE BEST IMAGE OF A STALKING LIONESS IV'E SEEN DONE SINCE EVER, THIS IS EXPRESSIVE AND SHOWS LIFE AT LARGE.

SIMPLY FANTASTIC WORK!! MY KUDOS TO THE ARTIST!

Sometimes "errors" gives character to a piece, I like imperfections usually :)
