Dipper in Acrylic on Board

This is about a third of my next painting, the final size will be 8 x 16 inches and it's acrylic on board.

The river Wharfe which is not far from home has a healthy resident population of dippers so I've managed to take quite a few photographs of them over the years.

Amur Leopard - Mixed Media

'Vantage Point - Amur Leopard'
16.5 x 11.5 inches

This is the first piece of completed artwork for 2013, an Amur Leopard in mixed media. It is mainly watercolour with some of the details added in coloured pencil on Arches hot pressed watercolour paper.

The leopard on my reference photograph was lying on a shelf so I substituted a rock from another of my reference photographs.
