Progression shots

Close ups

Oil on 6x6 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Jean was the great hostess. Thanks for the terrific reference photos.

Thought I would post the progression shots. I really liked the markings and minimal background in the first step. Kinda wish I had kept that.

Isaiah 11:
6 The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them.


  1. awesome progression shots!! Beautiful end result!!

  2. He's gorgeous! Wonderful texture too. Lovely.
    Happy Painting,

  3. Wow, Dean! I think one of my favorite animal pieces yet. Not only is the lion regal and oh so handsome, but that background is gorgeous! I know it is silly, but I instantly went to thoughts of the Garden of Eden.

  4. great job --I understand what you meant about wishing you'd left the background minimal...but I do like what you wound up with also. You always manage to impart a "largeness" on a small support!

  5. Thank you, Saundra.....It's great to "see" you again!

  6. Thank you, Nora! I checked out your fine blog...Beautiful and creative work!

  7. Thank you so much, Sherry! Now that you've mentioned it, The Garden of Eden is in my mind every time I look at it! :)

  8. I appreciate your commenting on the "largeness", Celeste!

    When I see other minimal paintings I wish I had the power to just stop in the right spot...but I always give in and paint on.

  9. WOW! Dean...I really like this one. Love the process, color and wonderful texture!!

  10. What a majestic creature Dean and a great play with texture and colors, thank you for showing the process as well.
    Love it!
