New painting

Generally I like to follow a large painting with one more modest in size. Here I am going bigger. This next piece is 44" X 36".

There are some logistically challenging aspects to a painting this tall on my easel. My ergonomic horizontal hand rest enables me to easily paint anywhere on a wet piece. However, its vertical support bars limit how high and low a painting can be positioned on the easel. The entire top part of the piece requires me reach up. Granted, this is much less of a burden than painting the Sistine Chapel on one's back, but it is not as comfortable as working on something smaller or horizontal.

I saw this lion in early morning light on my trip to Africa this summer.
