Surreal Lion Oil Painting

For my GCSE art coursework final piece, I coalesced the themes of surrealism and romanticism into one, along with the ideas of nature and force. Consequently, after hours of painting, I have completed this surreal lion concept – the romanticism part being shown in the mountains in the background. This was great fun to paint, especially when creating the rock textures in the landscape with the oil paints and going into detail with the very extravagant mane of the lion.

Inspiration for this piece included artists such as Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran for the romanticism, and Ellen June and Peter Mohrbacher for the surrealism.
