Leo, oil and enamel on canvas, 100 x 120 x 2 cm
Leo captures the strength and vitality of the lion…a hunter, a leader, a protector. Created using an expressionist style of painting accompanied by fine art detail, Leo is a dynamic painting full of tension and the power and strength of the lion. Gold flecks capture light in the painting adding depth and interest. The gaze of the powerful cat is glassy and hyper realistic and sits juxtaposed against the shaggy pose of the African king. Strong palette knifed strokes create texture and movement in the lions mane. Leo is ready to hang.
