"Mother's Pride": Awesome time-lapse of watercolour lion family

"Mother's Pride": Awesome time-lapse of watercolour lion family

Last month, I shared my shared my latest watercolour piece, featuring a family of cuddling lions. I asked my social media followers to suggest title ideas. There were some really fantastic ones, but my absolute favourite came from Sara: "Mother's Pride".

I love the double meaning -- not only is this lioness clearly proud of her cute cubs, but the collective noun for lions is of course a pride! Clever, right? Sara won three of my fabulous Downloadable Wall Art illustrations, and her kids helped to select this gorgeous mixed-and-matched trio from the SA flowers, birds and insects.

Now, I can finally share the awesome time-lapse video of the creation of "Mother's Pride". It's really worth watching: It took me three gruelling weeks to complete the painting (including a ridiculous fall that almost destroyed it), but I managed to edit (and re-edit and re-edit and re-edit) it to just under four minutes for your viewing pleasure!

"Mother's Pride" is now available in my online shop as stunning fine art prints (remember, these are not just prints - read all about their exceptional quality here). The one-of-a-kind original watercolour piece is also still available.
