Just putting the 1st layer of detail to this beautiful snow leopard and I am really enjoying painting the rock too.
Hope you like it so far.

It is VERY rare that I list one of my miniature sized paintings on eBay as I only do a VERY limited number of miniatures per year.
My miniature paintings have just as much detail as my large paintings and are painted using the tiniest brushes with just a few hairs!
Being miniature they are more collectable.
If you don’t have room for one of my large painting you will definitely have room for this beautiful Snow Leopard cub
Does any of my blog visitors have any great ideas for a title?
6 x 5in
Oil on canvas
Below is an example of how it might look framed

By now most of my collectors know that I have a great love for Snow Leopards, so it will come as no surprise that I just had to paint this beautiful cub.
We can only wonder what it is thinking as it sleepily gazes in to the distance.
It really does beggar belief that these cats are on the brink of extinction in the wild!
12 x 8in

Just thought I would drop you all a post to show a tiny snow leopard painting I am working on at the moment.
Its 10 x 8in oil on canvas as per usual.
(The original painting is for sale contact me for details – email@example.com)
This 1st stage below show just how dark an underpainting needs to be, especially if you are working in layers. Too light at this stage and your next layers of paint wont show up.
Painting fur texture (below) is really not that hard, as I show in my wildfeart eBooks, but you do need to have a plan and be methodical – it really doesn’t take that long either, with my techniques the whole face texture took about 2 hours.
The photo below shows the painting 80-90 % finished. All I really have to do is add the very lightest highlights and do a few specific glazes of colour just to bring it to life. I hope you like this little study of a Snow Leopard so far.
