'Valiant' is a realistic and colourful pastel portrait of a magnificent male lion. Drawn onto a charcoal coloured Pastelmat board, using pan pastels and pastel pencils. I've worked in layer after layer of pigment to help build the depth of colour and achieve the required tones. With the board being so dark, the colours are fairly muted but give a remarkable effect, especially if positioned near a lamp in the evening, which will pick up all of the golden tones, making the image almost glow. A fantastic addition to any wildlife enthusiast's art collection.


Measuring 15.75 x 11 inches, it has been mounted in a black mount with white core and framed in a luxuriously chunky, 1.5 inch deep, brushed pale gold fronted frame with grey sides, ready to hang.
