Hi folks,

Here's my recently completed pastel painting of a cheetah. I took the reference photo from a trip to Western Plains zoo in NSW Australia. The cheetah was behind a fence so it was a bit tricky. http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/30-Oct-2012/962019-Cheetah_297x420mm_.jpgI'd love to hear your comments.

Cheers
Geri

I usualy look in the main forum and didn't see this til now, beautiful work, the eyes look alive which really make a painting, love the whiskers and the way you have less detail away from the face, nice work.

Beautiful, beautiful. Pastel pencil, or soft pastels, and what support did you use?
cheers

All gorgeous, but the eyes especially so.

I used soft pastel and just a little gouache for the eyes and wiskers.

Thanks
