I started this one yesterday. It is mostly watercolour but I did use ink on the spots and darkest parts of the leopard. It is done on 11x14 140 lb watercolour paper. The original photo was shot by my friend, Laura Christopherson, and was used with permission. Feedback is welcomed!

Nice Cheetah Tania,  you may want to give it more rounding on  its back.  Also maybe make its eyes pop with more amber.   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Tania,

Great job.  Check the eye on the reference photo and then looks at yours.  The eye seems to be more recessed and partially covered - rather than full on.

Hope that make sense.

I see what you mean, Mea! Thanks! I wanted the eye to be a bit more prominent than the photo but the shape is wrong - too straight on! I will work on it tomorrow. :)

Great start Tania  O0   I think if you look closely at the ref. photo and add more shading on the head (nose/face) area especially, you will gain much more dimension. You need those shaded areas to get that lifelike 3D.  Keep on this one, I see a brilliant painting developing.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

I know the shading is very subtle, but it will make all the difference in the world. Can't wait to see it!  :heeha:
