+Thanks for the compliment, Sharon :blush:
I don't often get time to paint for myself. This one is hanging in our lounge as a reminder of the times when we used to spend most of our holidays in or nearby Game Reserves.

A wonderful reminder of what we have seen and experienced in our younger days, so close to nature and such an appreciation of it. We are very privileged to have those memories which we shall never forget.

 :clap:   Did it get a passing grade from Nolan? Did you use the color buster properly?  :yippee:


In my unqualified opinion it looks pretty good to me. I just want to see it framed.

I understand your comment about not often painting for yourself - I'm the same way. But now you're inspiring me to create something just for me!!
Cheers,
Sharon

Dennis,

Was the initial painting of the Leopard in black and white and then all your color was glazed in?

Paula, the photo was in full colour, but I changed the background colour to bring out the leopard. I painted all the spots and dark nose area first and then started the glazing. I didn't use the grisaille method here.

I am not qualify to judge this amazing painting from a Master Artist... but boy do I love it! 

Even with a magic brush I won't come near... but I would like to put down my name for one. I could use all the extra help available.

Now this is a super whooa painting!

Dennis, I have to learn this technique!  I can hardly imagine the patience to do so many layers.  Does it take long for each layer to dry?

The choice of colours is phenomenal.  I hope you are as pleased with this as we all are.  Banner job sir.  :congrats:

Kelly, it was done in acrylics. Each layer was just a hairdryer away. ;)
