There are four monumental bronze lions on the Trafalgar Square guarding the Nelson´s Column. I chose the one that is situated in the direction of the Big Ben. The lion is captured in the glorious evening light.

It is worth mentioning that this is my biggest painting so far. Working in a larger scale seems very liberating to me and I hope to make more of these bigger canvases soon.
