Ancient Tableau: Lioness and Stone Relief
This painting features a lion set against an ancient stone relief. The lioness is painted with thin layers of oil in a realistic fashion to enhance the softness of her fur and texture. The Lioness's pose is intentionally calm and relaxed in counterpoint to the raging lion relief in the background. I wanted to juxtapose the real animal against the stone version which is stylized and stereotypical in its fierceness.
