Lion in Pastel - part 2


I've been working on my lion. I did take time out yesterday to go to Martin Mere and then visit a friends litter of Rough Collie pups.
The lion looks a little like he's just been to the hairdressers, but I'll change that later.
Martin Mere was cold but I got some good photographs of a male Sparrowhawk. It landed on the ground and stayed for quite a long time with its feet in a shallow pond.
The puppies were lovely, our friends consistently breed quality puppies and these were no exception.

Wow!

Will we be shown the finished product on this one?

I'm curious as to how the lion turned out.

I've put this to one side for a while, but I will show the finish.
