Another Quick Project...

This is just a quick project inspired by a lion sketch in my sketchbook.  Like the last image, I used a combination of gouache and color pencil.  I very much like this combination of materials right now - the layering of washes, the texture of of paint, the subtle shading of the pencils or the emphasis of line.

Overall, I'm not as happy with this as I was with the "rainy day" one.  I started in with darker brown washes than I had intended, so I had to rework it with a little thicker paint.  Jury is still out - but it's growing on me.  Might have to be redone before making it in the portfolio, though.
