A Big Hare

I had fun with this one. :-) I wanted to do a big hare with thick juicy paint. I like this standing pose with the light coming from behind him and his shadow in front of him. He’s painted with thick acrylics using a knife and a brush on a 24×24 inch stretched canvas. I enjoyed it so much I’m tempted to do another large painting soon.

Strolling Tiger

I am not just making jewellery, I am doing a lot of painting too. This one is tiger out for a stroll. I love this head on view of him, you really see what a powerful cat he is as he strolls along the bank.

He is painted in watercolour and inks with a touch of thicker acrylic paint, on 20×14 inch Fabriano Artistico paper, which has a lovely texture. He comes in a 24×18 inch double mount.

Hare And Moon In Resin

My new resin piece is a hare by moonlight. He sits in the grass with a huge pearly moon behind him. I have some new metallic pigments and I wanted to use them in this piece. I like the way they look in his coat, the rusty colour in his body is gorgeous.

Colourful Leopard

Another snow leopard, this time in water media with lots of messy splashing around and loads of colour. I love her profile and thought I’d add a splash of pink and gold vanishing out of the picture. I’m imagining an exotic bird beating a hasty retreat!

Mother and cub – sold

I’ve just about finished this new painting of a snow leopard Mum and her cub in profile. It’s a 12×12 inch oil on canvas board. The last snow leopard I painted had warm fur against a cold blue green backdrop so this time I wanted to reverse that and try cool grey/lilac/blue fur against a soft, warm background. Now they just need varnishing.
