My latest Acrylic Painting. 20" x 30" gallery canvas. From a photograph taken by one of my students, Anne Evans, who recently visited Sabi-Sabi Game Reserve in South Africa.

Built up using the glazing technique. The Leopard has about 7 layers of glazing.

With all the banter about this painting, I had to go check it out.  Wow, really nice Dennis.  Nolan is really teaching you well.
