One of my favorite parts of this piece is that there's little to no background. Many, many talented artists are so determined to make the piece exactly like their reference that they paint/draw in that fuzziness in the photo. But your work is very refreshing because, by foregoing the unnecessary details of the background, the detail used to accentuate the subject is all the more powerful. Thank you for sharing your work!

Thank you for the wonderful compliment. I really strive to avoid reproducing photographs- for me, the animal has always been the hero. I'll only introduce background information if the painting really needs it, or if my client insists on it :-)

I can't help but picturing this in sequence; first the cub spots the butterfly, then he starts playing with, batting it all around, then lastly, we see him grinning triumphantly with the 'prey' in his mouth.

Nice work! I really like how you added some blur by the butterfly's wings- it gives a nice sense of motion to create contrast with the still lion cub. Also, I love the title. It's very clever!

btw: never heard of it. sorry...what is Belgian linen? Does it have another structure and is it still a canvas?

Yes it's still canvas - it doesn't have the very mechanical texture of regular canvas and the one i use has a finer weave allowing for more detail.
