Color Inspiration—Delacroix's Lion Hunt

March—in like a lion... 
This is a detail of Eugène Delacroix's, Lion Hunt. Just look at the sumptuous colors that he used in this painting, created in 1861. I am in awe of the colors and brushwork, and energy, not to mention the dramatic lion scene. The subject of felines in the wild was one that really interested Delacroix. I've seen this painting at the Art Institute of Chicago—it's quite spectacular.
