Lion in the evening light
Original Oil on linen, 75cm x 75cm.
This beautiful Lion has been created with only the finest quality materials.
The natural linen background enhances the drama of the piece, and the effect of the lion created with layers of oil paint.
This lion is named Half-tail and is one of the lead male lions of the Marsh pride on the Masai Mara. I've included some warm pinks and cool blues in amongst the more naturalistic colours. We waited a long time to capture a glimpse of Half tail one evening. When other visitors left the sighting to head off for their sundowners in peace, we waited just a bit longe. Half tail is rather shy and does not like heading out from his hiding places when visitors are around. When we were the only jeep left observing him, he finally emerged from the long grasses and faced us. By now the light was fading and a beautiful warm pink light captured the highlights on his face in Mayne. He was breathtaking.
IF you've ever been on Safari in Kenya you will know the moment, he was such an incredible sight.
This traditional oil painting, with a delightful contemporary twist will complete any room in your home.
"Lion in the evening light" will make you smile with pride every time you look at him.
