Hi there all! I decided on the Leopard Cub, I thought it might not be so hard to do but I was wrong. I have already spent two hours on it and not nearly finished and don't even know if I will finish it, so I am just letting it go as is.
I used oil on a 15x15cm masonite. I was just going to use gray shades but ended up with a few more touches of colors as you can see.
May you all have a happy week:wave:

With its subtle colours and softness it looks very catlike.

beautiful job on the expression. Once you start with the spots these cats can take forever to draw.

Thank you Tangerine and Robert for your comments. Originally I wanted the cat to really leap forward. Thank you for noticing my crop Robert and Tangerine for mentioning of the broken color. Much appreciated.

The leopard looks innocent and cute..it must be tough to work with a limited pallette..well painted!

Who is this beautiful Leopard peering for prey?!

I love the cat-like, steely eyes...so quiet, hunting, tormenting the prey, yet softly so. Sticks a soft paw against your hands and then you feel the claws.

Powerful expression.
