Small Lion

Original, Painting | 12 × 8 cm | Framed


Oil on canvas only.

This stunning little picture is another fine example of David Shepherd’s brushwork. By using a combination of soft brush strokes and fine lines it creates an atmosphere, allowing us as a viewer to feel the environment around this young lion in the African Bush. Generally it is very hard to see this lions since they blend so well into the landscape. African lions are under threat and, with little known about the diminishing lion populations especially in Uganda, DSWF funding will help conservationists better understand the issues and threats.

David Shepherd CBE

David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation
David Shepherd CBE was a founding father of the wildlife art movement whose work has become synonymous with Africa, wildlife and conservation. Known as ‘The Man who Loved Giants’ for his iconic elephant artwork, for decades his paintings have graced the walls of homes, libraries, exhibitions and public spaces and excite a passion in the viewer much like the emotion he felt during the creation of his work.

David was best loved for his archetypal African scenes portraying dusty waterholes teaming with life, capturing the heat and haze of an African landscape, all of which bring to life the sounds, smells and textures of a continent he called his second home. Beyond wildlife art, David had a prolific painting career which focused on many other topics and subjects. With an equal passion and love for military subjects, steam trains, landscapes and lesser seen portraits, his numerous originals and prints are held by collectors around the world.
