I remember that it was hot out on the Serengeti. In the middle of a blue sky day, you would look for lions under things, panting, dappled in scant shadows. For me it was fortuitous, as this young male didnt have the energy to move. I was able to make several sketches of him and his brother.
I've used a wide brush, quickly applied as I wanted to keep the energy of the field sketch in this final.
