De Nederlandse leeuw... The Dutch lion...




Naar een foto van Sarah Stribbling op Paint My Photo.
Misschien helpt het ons Nederlands elftal.... 

From a photo by Sarah Stribbling on Paint My Photo.
Maybe it will help our Dutch national team...

Hello Ashok, thank you!

Hi Ann, thank you, I am glad you like him!

Dankjewel Renate! Deze ging bijna vanzelf, terwijl de paddestoelen moeizaam gingen. Ik vind dat zo gek soms.

Julie Ford Oliver said...

I love watercolor - especially when it used like this. The play of cool shadows next to the warm light areas sends a zing right to my heart!

L.W.Roth, said...

Terrific lion. Your strokes are right on target. Colors are perfect.Great movement in the mane.

L.W.Roth, said...

Great lion--more alive than the one I just saw in the zoo. Colors are right on and the mane moves. Nice job.

Tina Moriano said...

Precioso, unas sabias pinceladas y le has dado vida!

Cora said...

Prachtig!

Maga Fabler said...

Anamaria is right, your style, Judy, is recognizable. This portrait is awesome - the real big wild Dutch cat. I love cats, you know :)

Irina said...

Thank you so much for your comment.
I do not watch football, but I hope Dutch will win!
As I see the limited palette has unlimited opportunities. In right hands.

Ciao, un abbraccio, Floriana

John Simlett said...

Judy, I'm missing all your posts... really sorry ... I'm playing nurse to my poorly Pat.

Love the Lion (and the mushrooms) Love the hint of your team's colours in its mane. Alas ... the national team is home by now! If England lose tomorrow, they'll be home too.

Mari Jose Molina said...

Preciosa acuarela, te ha quedado magnifica. Saludos!

Judy said...

John, best wishes to Pat, hope she gets well soon!

Well, he did not help, he did not roar hard enough.

Un abrazo

Cynthia Schelzig said...

Michael Bailey said...

Hi Judy! Animals are such very difficult subjects, but you have captured the lion so very well in your own style with all those lovely fresh washes.

Judy said...

Laura, thank you!

Rosa, muchas gracias!

Hi Cyn, thanks!!

Hi Michael, thank you! Portraits, animal or human, are fun to do! And I have some landscapes on my to-do-list.
