Lion WIP




I've started a lion- I am hoping to make him dramatic so I did a value study to fix it in my mind better. It was hard to photograph as it does not lie flat- I tried something new (a new toy!)- a water-soluable pencil- so since I didn't use wc paper it "wrinkled up" a bit. I ironed it (!) which helped... anyway, here's the beginning of the idea.

Carol, I'm so envious! I'm not able to make shadows. Your lion will be a wonderful proud king!

Italo, shadows are only a lack of light- where you do not want light- you make the dark!!! :-)
