Years ago, I was in London attending some legal course or other. I stayed at a hotel in South Kensington. Nearby, at Hyde Park Gate, I spotted a magnificent sculpture of a winged lion. It decorated the corner of a white building, dating from the Victorian era by the look of it. I thought then that I’d love to do a painting of the lion, but I didn’t have my sketchbook or camera. (This was before phones had cameras built into them.) But I remembered the winged lion and last year, while I was in that area again, I took some photos of it. So here it is, the Winged Lion, in all its glory, painted in monochrome. The colour I used is Ivory Black.
After a Google search, I can tell you that there’s a set of the lions on the building. (I only saw one.) Apparently they were sculpted by a gent named Alfred Drury in 1898.
