Capturing the moment when Athena cursed Medusa, turning her from beauty to beast! Most of the brushes i used are from my palette give away, using Painter 2017. I tried a few sketches until i was happy with pose, then got stuck into painting her. Getting all my colours, values right i then moved onto the fun part, lighting & textures…. one of the new brush categories in Painter 2017 are texture brushes, they are brilliant….with plenty of scope to manipulate textures to wrap your subject not just lay on top. I decided on a shadowy scene, hiding in a grungy building as the rays of light fall on her scaley skin….. once completed i used a couple of particles to add the magic! Enjoy, she is available for purchase & will be entered in a couple of art competitions. For more details, or questions….im always happy to talk art, you can contact me through email, mobile, Facebook or Instagram. ❤️ 🦁🎨

Fantasy portrait – Cry Wolf
I’ve finished my little wolf girl, really had fun painting her. This is the first portrait that I’ve done purely from my imagination……let my mind just take me where it wanted without restrictions. This was personal, stemming from my Dads stories of the boy who cried wolf, &my love for predators esp those being hunted &poached to extinction. She is the moon goddess, protecting the creatures of the night, the wolf is both her soulmate & protector. I love using Corel Painter, its an amazing program….feels so organic & easy to customise to suit your style. Painter 2017, has some awesome new brushes great for both traditional & pure digital artists alike……..if you haven’t tried it, jump on to their site & get a trial…..i know you will love it! I used the mirror tool a lot in this, another first for me…will def use it more. I will be entering my wolfie girl in an upcoming exhibition, but im open to offers or inquiries on purchasing her. I hope she captures your heart, enjoy viewing her but please do not copy or reproduce her without my consent, sharing in social media is fine …..just make sure shes credited with a link to me……thanks muchly 😊❤ ©LionArt-Michelle Webb

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
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.
