Beginning!

This is the start of a new painting….not a great pic, sorry but thought you might like to see my setup, so just an iphone photo. I like to keep my fav brushes, tools & media handy…Painter 2017’s new palette drawers make this so easy, while keeping plenty of canvas area to paint on. I’ll be putting together a little tutorial for this when finished.   ©LionArt-MichelleWebb image

Pet portrait…..landscape…..why not do both!

This began as a traditional portrait of my best mate Kuma, but somewhere along the way i decided to show more of his persona with some water, sun & space. Water is Ku’s happy place, from an inch of mud to the surf beaches near home hes happiest when in the water. The rest of the painting was playing around with shapes, colours & layer methods…Commissions are always welcome, call or email me to discuss your vision for a new artwork for your home or office.

The bond of mother & babe

Nothing is stronger than a mothers love….human or animal. This is a painting I just finished for an exhibition Art For Apes…raising money for Center For Great Apes in the US. i loved painting these two as the connection between them is so apparent while they steal a moment of peace high up in the branches. Its vital we care for their habitat, so think of this before purchasing products with palm oil. We want these & other wildlife to be there for future generations to enjoy, but we also need each species as they form the eco system that keeps our planet healthy.For info on purchasing this or other artwork contact me. copyrite: Lion Art-Michelle Webbunbreakable-bond

Skelly, an artists friend!

Hi everyone….. I recently found an awesome app called ‘Skelly’ & had to grab it straight away….no longer do we need the wooden anatomy figures that grace many an artists studio, Skelly has us covered! A full skeleton with various pre programmed poses, plus the ability to move skelly into infinite silohettes with all the joints moving seperately makes this little app a must have for any artist that loves to paint the human form. Skelly can also be changed into a robotic looking version of the traditional wooden figure, with a chrome covering his bony bod! The app also features light source that can be moved to show various angles how light hits the body & creates shadows…. Check it out now, i think you’ll find it to be a great tool as i have- ❤️🦁🎨
