Finally finished- ink and gouache on mounted Stonehenge.

 Here is a breakdown of the process- starting with thin washes of india ink to build up tone, then moving to a sort of greenish blue because I wanted the lights to be cool, and then building up warmth in the face/lips/etc and in the lion, and finally deepening the shadows with a warm purple-red so the darks would be warm. Last step- details like whiskers and highlights, as well as washes of white over the background elk so they seem ghostly and transparent:

This painting is already RESERVED but there will be many many more available so be sure to email Matt Kennedy at and say that you would like to be put on the preview list for JAW Cooper's show in April 2013.
