My face looked like that when I saw yet more snow falling. The dogs however love it, apart from when it makes those little snow balls in their paws. This is my latest ACEO, acrylic and coloured pencil on drafting film.
I stopped work on the cat to draw this tiger cub. It's coloured pencil and acrylic on Ingres paper, approximately 6 x 4.
I'm having a stand at a cat show next weekend and I thought it would be nice to offer a tiger print.
Hopefully in the near future I will be able to do more demonstrations for my blog and write some more interesting posts because I'm hopefully going to be leaving my day job at the end of March. Watch this space.
This is mainly watercolour on Arches Hot Press paper, approximately 7 x 5 inches. I've left the fur on the back undefined so that I can put all the detail in the face. I'm thinking that I might do a bigger version of this one as I like the pose.
I've missed my first goal for the year, I didn't make the dealine for Wildlife Artist of the Year.
A couple of unexpected things happened last week which gave me less time for art but I should have started earlier, after all I have known the closing date for entries for the last twelve months.
This is the start of my Snow Leopard, it's mixed media on Arches paper approx 20 x 18 ins. The photograph isn't very good I'll take a better one in daylight tomorrow.I used my own photograph taken at Marwell Zoo a couple of years ago.
I'm sure I'll find something else to enter it in later in the year.
