Original Painting of a lion showing interest in a porcupine. Porcupines must be very tasty, because hunting them seems to be worth the risk of their quills.
Original watercolour watercolor wildlife painting by renowned South African wildlife artist, Sue Dickinson.
Sue’s preferred painting medium is watercolour. This much under-rated medium is widely acknowledged by artists to be the most difficult. “There is no room for error with watercolour – because once it’s on the paper, it is almost impossible to remove. Consequently, I work carefully and accurately. I’m not attempting to reproduce reality, therefore I want to work fairly loosely too.
It is important for the viewer to be able to see the mark of the artist, and also the journey I have taken on the page. Certainly I don’t want a slick look.”
