The Lion and the girl

I was inspired by Ivy Newport on instagram with her mixed media rendition (acrylic) of the same subject though with a very different technique.I wanted to paint on brown paper and gouache to get a bit of transparency effect. I like the warm effect of a toned paper but the quality of the paper itself is not too good for water media.I still prefer working with watercolour paper of good quality.
