Lion design ideas
My painted lion will be bold, colourful and lively on the eyes - decorative without being too dependent on pattern, it will involve an interplay between abstract shapes and colours, inviting the onlooker to a sort of 'eye dance', in which to engage with all the different elements as he/she moves around the lion. I would like to reflect some lion qualities such as dignity, presence, energy and strength.
