Here is my memory of a wary young male African lion. He had been pushed out by the pride to lead a nomadic existence until the day he was mature enough to try his luck to win his own pride & territory either alone or by teaming up with another male lion of a similar age to form a brotherly bond.
His keen eyes locked onto mine, making my whole body freeze, so I hardly dare breathe until he passed the open truck.
The encounter, however was indelibly etched onto my memory and this watercolour attempts to capture the intensity of the big cat's stare.
