Lion’s Call – 2018

An energetic boxed canvas by contemporary wildlife artist David Rees.
This piece was painted during the summer of 2017 and was inspired by the British and Irish Lions rugby tour in New Zealand.
Its wildlife theme incorporates both a lion’s call to the pride, and the pride a player must feel when representing their country. David used a new technique, painting it ‘inside out’ by using a red mid-tone and applying colour from dark to light. He splashed paint organically to try and capture the different textures, such as the sandy tones of a lion’s fur.
