"Lion"

It's always so much fun to study animals. Some are cute, other mysterious or majestic and they are all beautiful in their variety. We probably already know all the existing species but for me drawing them is always like a rediscovery. You start drawing an animal which you think you know very well and after a while you notice that there is so much more to observe and that the possibilities are endless ...

Have a wonderful week! See you soon :)

P.S. Because it's going to be my 4 months anniversary on the 4th of September this week, I want to thank you all for your support and all the thoughts you share here. I hope you find some inspiration in what I do. 
And thank you for everything you do on your blogs as well :) Keep up the good work!

  3. Hi Marielle - This is especially well done. First, Happy Anniversary and I am happy to have met you. You draw and paint with your soul, your heart, your very being. It goes deep within you and you have captured the "Lion" in all aspects. I feel as though I can look deep into his eyes and feel as though he is alive. Lovely :)
