This is my current project, a very close up cheetah cub face using W&N acrylics on 11" x 14" stretched canvas. The photo reference is by the very talented Denise Soden and used with permission. I chose to do this to give myself experience painting very textured fur, and because those big liquid eyes just melt me to the core.

Thankyou everyone :) Here's the next work-in-progress update. Fur is so hard to do when it's so close up!

This is looking great and the eyes are especially lovely. Closeup fur is so time-consuming! Gail

I've had a couple of days of sitting on my butt on the couch whilst not feeling too well, so I put all that time to good use and finished off my cheetah cub :)
