Here’s a mountain lion I painted back in June of ‘18. This is Samson, who I painted again a few months ago. I have a pretty big photo album full of photos taken of Sam, along with a few other cats, and all of the photos were taken by my father in 1998. It’s always quite a challenge painting these rocks covered with moss and pine needles, because there’s just so much details to try to paint. But if I just focus on shape, color, and light, and try not to worry to much about all the details, it can start to come together as a believable image.
