Hi everyone!
Here is a watercolor piece I finished about a week ago. I saw this beautiful photo on flickr with this leopard's striking eyes, and I just knew I had to paint it. I'm very appreciative of the user for allowing me to use his photo.
This is about 18X24, Watercolor on Strathmore Cold Press.
Thanks for looking! C&C Welcome.:)
Paige

(also, anyone who may be wondering...I promise to have an update on the Snow Leopard sometime this weekend:D)

Thank you for the wonderful comments Patrick, Jaraiz, Frank, Karen, and Robert!:D I love doing these looser paintings in Watercolor. The artwork of Anne London (link: http://www.aelondonstudio.com/?nav=galleryIntro) really inspires me, especially during this piece!:)

Love this Paige! The looseness and 'unfinished" look brings those gorgeous eyes to attention. Well done!

Nicely done Paige! I really like how you've made the painting more detailed near the focal point of the eyes.
