Hey everyone, I shared this in the wildlife section but thought I would share it here aswell.

It's 68cm x 48cm and was done with pastel pencils. I finished it a couple of weeks ago and have since moved onto a panther.

Welcome to the pastel forum! This is beautiful. Can you share a little about your work? What is your preferred medium. How long have you been working in pastels?

Lovely leopard, Big K. What paper did you use? Is it Colourfix?

Thanks for the kind words guys.

Watergirl.... My preferred medium is pastel pencils, although I use oil pastels, watercolour pencils, Inktense pencils, charcoal pencils, ink and colour pencils as well. I generally draw wildlife but can pretty much draw anything if the mood takes me. I have been drawing with pastel pencils for about 15 years, which included an 8 year break when my daughter was born.

Barbara.... The paper used is Canson Mi-Teintes Tex Paper
