I love the symbolism and imagery of the Zodiac signs and from time to time use this theme in my art as an inspiration. This original painting (from my "Signs of Zodiac" series) belongs to this category. It's depicts Leo as a whimsical, benevolent royal figure from some fairy tale/ enchanted world.
Same as the other "Signs of Zodiac" paintings, Lion-King is done in my original technique that creates the effect of stained glass on canvas. To get such effect I used color combinations, glazing, sponging, black relief outliner and few coats of finishing glossy varnish. One can feel the light coming through the painting. This is best realized when you look at it with your very own eyes and in closer proximity.
The photo image does not do any justice to this GORGEOUS piece of art! The digital camera does not capture neither the richness and luminosity of colors, nor the dimensional relief of the lines, replacing glass-like shine of the surface with a flashlight glare. High-quality acrylics were used to paint this artwork, after which the lines were made with a Vitrel relief outliner to produce a stained glass effect on canvas. Signed and dated on a back. Finished with several coats of clear high-gloss varnish to increase the effect and to protect investment for years of display. Ready to be hanged with or without a frame. Sides of canvas painted so framing is not necessary.
All works come signed with title, date, initials and signature of the artist (me) on a back along with an exclusive Certificate of Authenticity
