Description

Intrigued by the original image taken by a photographer and animal researcher at the Taronga zoo, I was inspired to recreate her image in watercolor, with permission of course. The painting of this beautiful lion was number five in the Big Cats series and is now being offered in prints.
The original watercolor painting is available. Painted on 300 lb. Rag Edge Watercolor cold press paper.
