Artist's Description

Gouache on Board (15X11)
I thought I would have a go at painting the majestic lion!

The African lion is the only big cat not endangered, being listed as a “threatened species”. Their life span is on average 15 years in the wild with captive lions living up to their late twenties.

The mature male lions have a mane which covers the back of the head and shoulders, which varies in colour from the rest of the body growing darker with age; its purpose is to protect the lion during fights.

My painting is of Kafara who lives with his 3 brothers at a big cat sanctuary not far from my home. The original is still available.
