Paintings: Shadow Fire

"Shadow Fire"

Acrylic on canvas board
~ Prints are available here ~

A friend of mine commissioned this piece after falling for my painting "Sun King," which had already sold. However, she asked that her lion have more vibrant oranges, yellows, and reds, and that he be in profile or 3/4 view. Since I was afraid of creating a "Sun King" clone, I chose the profile option, which I have only painted once before in leonine terms. I do have to wonder just what he is looking at so intently!
