I just love Cats, big or small. So have made a few attempts at them.
Here I've painted a study of 2 different Leopards heads
African and Anhur

Hi Rita, I love your work. Any chance of seeing it bigger? :)

Beautiful studies Rita. I'm with Patrick about wanting to see larger versions. What medium are these done in?

Unfortunately it sold very fast and I only kept this photo of it as a reference. Now that I've actually joined a group I'll make sure I store them in a larger size in future. Thank you for your kind comments, I've always been too embarrassed about my work to show it before. There is so much talent out there and it's good to join a group to gain confidence. I've been very fortunate with selling my work, mostly through word of mouth. I get a lot of Commissions which always amazes me

I've decided to be brave and show my other Leopard painting

I forgot to mention that I paint with Acrylics on canvas only. I prime the canvas with Acrylic house paint before I begin because I like the smoother surface to paint on but still have the give of the canvas which I really like. I've never had lessons of any type but I just like to paint.
I'm going to begin another Clouded Leopard this evening. I say another one because I've attempted them before. They're my very favourite Cats so I'll puty my last attempt up for you to see and then use the new one as a WIP

This is my 'Peek-a-boo'

These are beautiful Rita! You do have talent and thank you for sharing these!

Have had to change my mind for now and use a Snow Leopard for my WIP. Terrible when you have to be reminded that you owe someone a painting :)
Age creeping up on me.
And yes, I have done a snow Leopard before.

All beautiful work, Rita, love them all! Thanks for posting them! That snow leopard composition is great, I think that's my favourite so far :wave: :clap:
