Weekly Painting Week 50- Behold the Lion King large format painting

This is a large (30 x 40″) Acrylic painting with with red, orange and yellow in the sky. The darker reds are a mix of Azo red and umber or black. The hardest part of this was making the head of Mufasa appear in the sky without making it look too solid. Very challenging as I had to make the yellow/brown/white lion king out of all reds. even the eyes are a browned down red, although they read black. Try to paint a figure or scene using only reds, or only blues. This is where a value scale comes in. Acrylic on stretched canvas, 30 x 40″
