This is a snow leopard drawn in pastels on a painted background using a reference photo by G.Rosner with thanks.
I loved all the gentle colours that went in to building up the thick coat of this beautiful big cat. Did you know that the fur on a snow leopard grows to around 12cm long on their tummies to give them plenty of insulation. I bet they need it!
I have decided to call this one Serenity - I hope you like her as much as I enjoyed drawing her.
Serenity has been mounted in a very pale lilac/grey mount and then framed in a black wooden frame. Overall size is 41 x 48cm
