Lion, Acrylic on canvas, 70 x 50 x 2 cm, by Ellie Traquair

About the work:

This painting of a lion was created after visiting several zoos during a course I was attending and I found it hard seeing them contained in an environment that was so unnatural, kind of like people in cities.
This work was creating using acrylics, with a mixture of bold brush strokes and paint splatter.
