View Full Version : Cheetah.
My latest wildlife portrait. Painted on Langton's water-colour paper 140lbs, using a water-colour wash for the basic values, then Rembrandt pastels and various brands of pastel pencils for detail work, final finish with rembrandt pastels. My sig hasn't shown up too clearly, due to the downsize, actual painting size is:
- 18 inches x 14 inches. Comments always welcome.
All my work is copyrighted.
Problem here, my downloaded pic is not showing.
Better try again.
Don't understand what happened with the first download, sorry about that.
Comments very welcomed.

Very nice! I like the softness of his fur and his eyes are very well done.

Mo this is great. One day when I grow up.......
Why is the black on the cat's left eye more pronounced than the other side? Just a question - a learning moment for me please.

Would help if you could post the photo, the shot is showing the head tilted so perhaps not to much of the forehead is showing. I feel a smigen more on the top would help. Dont know but really think the colours are fab. Interesting painting ,well done.
What part of SW are you from, I am a Penarth person.

WOW, I love how you brought him out of the background.
Really wild looking and I love the colors!

Sure this wasn't done on black velvet? Only kidding. :D Great colors. Let's see more.

Yep . . Like this one Mo!!:D
The integration of the background colours with the main subject is very well done. Personally, this is my problem area and I like the way you dealt with it.
Great stare . . . he/she is fixated on something . . prey perhaps?
Nice to wonder
Thanks everyone for the comments and apologies for not replying sooner, things have been topsy turvy here, should I mention 'home improvements' which as you all know takes it's toll on creativity.
Striver, I'm not that far from Penarth, I live just outside Newport in a small village called St. Brides.

I have to agree. The colors are very nice, and the lighting on the face is very well done.

Beautiful! You caught a wonderful expression on it's face and the fur is sooooo soft. Fine work!
Thank you Maverick and Ariadne for your kind comments, I wasn't 100% sure the colours would work, but glad I now that I used them.
Very nice. The fur looks so real. It seems to pop out of the background. I have a minor problem that the lower jaw is not parallel with the top of the head.
Well Joe, I've checked out that minor point that seems to bother you, but can't find anything wrong.
Sorry, guess I was wrong. I'm new to art and I'm looking at the art that I admire to find out all that I can about line and value so that maybe my art can improve. I didn't mean to offend.
