The lion pair

In the leopard pair I had some soft blues in the background to complement the orange highlights in the cats. With the yellow light on the male lion, I thought some purples in the background would really make the highlights stand out.   

When painting animals the first place I start is the eyes. Once the eyes, nose and mouth are painted I have a feeling for the character of the animal. Then it much easier for me to develop the rest of the painting.
