Budapest Lions: These were stunning and beautiful; very much like the lions I had sketched in Spain around 2005. I did like the lions in Spain at the end of the Ramblas better; they were a bit more "raw" and more emotive. It was a very hot and windy day to paint, very hard to keep the paint moist and I was very tired. It became very humid and overcast; killing the form and making it difficult to show how stunning the form was. My brother estimates that we had walked about 14 miles the day before! So I was a little off my game.
