Leslie, you're always worth waiting for. He is beautiful.

Leslie Sealey said...

Thanks, Sandra! I had such a good time painting him. Time to get back to some humor...

Leslie Sealey said...

Hi Rob! I hope Frans Hals would have a good laugh; his paintings were the inspiration for Sir H.

Leslie Sealey said...

Thanks so much, Sheila. I think my efforts with the cityscape paintings resulted in the hippos feeling much easier to do. There is more confidence this time around.

He looks a happy and contented pillar of society, but why does he wear such light eye shadow?

Simon, I have no idea. I just paint what I see. : )
