I've been working on this mountain lion painting. It's been challenging trying to get everything just right in this one. I have to get the fierce look of the big cat just right along with the lighting. I'm trying to make it appear like the cat is down in the bottom of a canyon without actually painting the canyon. I just want it implied by the rocks the cat is on and the way the sunlight is hitting the cat but leaving everything else in shadow. I want the tree in front of the cat to set it back and make it part of it's surroundings. Almost like it sees you before you see it. We'll see how the rest of the painting goes. I may have to make some adjustments here and there. I'll post the finished product when I'm done.
