"Heart of a Lion"

Oil on canvas
40 by 34 inches

Inspired by the Orientalist Artists of the 19th Century, the subject is seen as almost off balance while in the process of killing his prey.

The painting embraces rich colour and tone to introduce drama and atmosphere. The tassel hanging behind his arm, seems to have a life of its own. The manner with which it has been portrayed, echoes the mood of the painting as a whole.
