Finger Lickin' Good

This lioness was in the Dallas Ft Worth Zoo a few years ago and I took the photo of her through the two sets of wire and bars. I did a LOT painstaking work in Photoshop to get rid of the bars etc, and managed quite a wonderful shot in the end.

Considering the lion was around 40 feet from me I was thrilled with the clarity of features.

Having said that, my painting makes her look a lot younger than she was, but I am actually okay with that, she would like it too, I am sure. LOL.

This was another pastel on velour paper.

Thankyou Johanne, I am glad you like my new kitty cat.
These animal ones are such fun to do, but it's even better when people respond to them as you have, thanks again.
