Aprox. 2 and 3 hours, with thinking time between.

Then 4,5 and 6.......

and finally, 7 or maybe 8 hours later.....

Almost finished, still wet.
People often ask me how long it takes to do a painting. This one took about an hour or two drawing as well, and then there was the rough, which I did whilst watching A Knight's Tale with Heath Ledger and the lion came out looking rather like Heath Ledger, which was strange.
So in this case I would say that it took about 10 hours, and 45 years ( as it has beneath and behind it the experience and learning of a lifetime of drawing and painting. 


  1. absolute magic...the king is splendid!

  2. thank you for sharing your process in revealing the mighty King of Cats

  3. Beautiful, I love seeing the process, watching the cats emerge from the paper!

  4. Beautiful painting! I love seeing how it progressed.
    Couldnt help smiling over the lion that turned out looking like Heath Ledger :)
