Another in my series of versions of ACTs/ACEOs in watercolour from an imaginary jaunt around Safariland. Today, we come across a lion cub.

More rough than ready, and hardly anywhere near as cute as it should be – it needs further work doing to the eyes – this little cub is still curious as to what or who is looking back at it.  It won’t run away, though. It’s too warm to run away. All of the babies we are coming across on this safari are resting. Resting gives us just that extra little bit of time (although still no time to finish the eyes, though. Sigh!)

It’s all practice, though. And fun.

  2. I like this safari tour of babies. This one has a bit of a worried look – maybe it just needs a cuddle 🙂

    1. Thanks, Susan. The fact that it isn’t as cute as it should be, makes it cute.

  5. There’s more right with this little chap than there is wrong with it.
