Leopard - 'Concentration'

I started this one a very long time ago and always meant to get around to finishing it. My upcoming exhibition got me motivated and here it is.

Measures around 14" x 16" using pastels -Derwent and Faber Castell Pitt pencils and some softer sticks for the background. Support is maize coloured Clairfontein Pastelmatt.


  1. Lovely work ;)
    what kind of exhibition are you in ?

  2. Waaaaaouh, superbe travail. Bravo

  3. I'm speechless! A gorgeous painting! Congratulations!!!

  4. He's beautiful Bev! I love how you combine mediums so skilfully and seamlessly. In fact I think I prefer this method to just cp's as it looks more like a traditional painting. Excellent work - when/where is your exhibition?

    My exhibition will be at Hestercombe Gardens near Taunton in Somerset. They have a restaurant/Gallery there, so wont be short of visitors. I will be drawing at the weekends across lunchtime, just to drum up a few more commissions (I hope). It is from Mon 18th June to Sunday 8th July.
