Mountain Lion Painting

What I'm working on now is a 24' x 36" oil of a mountain lion.  Today I brought the painting out of the studio and into the garden...Good exercise..  I was able to do some plein air painting on the foliage.
So this is where I am now...Much to do.

One last Fox post

Fox painting progress. While working on this I was drawn to a mountain lion. Now my time is split between this fox and other foxes and a mountain lion. Oh yes and a grizzly and soon to be added lynx and pack of wolves. I'm busy.  Here's the fox progress.

Grizzly Bear Painting

" The Path of Persistence"   Oil on Canvas  24" x 30"
This is Bruno. Bruno is forging for goodies...playing in the stream on the way.
I used a pallet knife mostly wanting to get the movement of his thick coat. This time my pallet of color was a bit more subdued not as contrasty as usual. This painting has become a fun learning experience. Something I highly recommend.  He's almost done..perhaps some more work on the background..
