Roar, originally uploaded by martasart.

Nice how he posed for me huh? Actually, I took the reference photo by holding the camera lens up to the eyepiece of one of those 'drop a quarter in telescope' at the Wild Animal Park. He was fun to do and now he belongs to my little grand-nephew Aidan.

    Your Lion is wonderful - I love the looseness that you achieved painting him. I also love the December open publication insert at the top of your blog. How did you do that?

  2. Deborah Says:

    Great idea and a great memory for Aidan. You always do such great things.

  3. He looks like such a benevolent lion! Great use of watercolor. Lucky Aidan!

  4. jackie Says:

    wow that's amazing how you did the "telescoping lens". Aidan is sure to treasure this forever.

  5. Joan Says:

    Great painting of the lion. Aidan must love it!! Good idea for taking a photo...I never would have thought of that!

  6. Sandy Says:

    I love the style you did this in, very cool! I would definitely hang that on my wall.

  7. Laureline Says:

    Loose and lovely and vibrant, Marta. Your Aidan is very lucky to have it.

    Marta, great job on the lion. Good thinking of how to capture his ref. image. Aiden must be very thrill to see this.
