Next on the easel: Jovial leopards

Next on the easel: Jovial leopards

Apart from finishing up Rebecca's very special portrait, I'm also jumping into my next wildlife piece. I'm still soldiering ahead under the exciting theme of "Move!" - a dynamic collection that will feature in my 2025 wildlife calendar.

I've been in the mood for a big cat for a while now, perhaps because I've been so focussed on the gorrrgeous little guys for quite some time. This incredible photo was captured by the extremely talented and oh-so-gracious Marietjie Froneman (and shared with permission, as always!).

Am I intimidated by all those spots? Absolutely. Am I kicking myself for selecting another reference photo with multiple subjects in it? Oh yes. Am I excited to get started? Hells yeah!

Wish me luck!

PS. If this reference photo already speaks to you and you're thinking that the bespoke original will look oh-so-snazzy in your home, please reach out! My one-of-a-kind wildlife originals often sell right off my easel, even before they are completed. No pressure at all and no hard feelings if you're not 100% happy with the final piece and decide to pass! But, at least I can reserve it for you to have first dibs upon completion...

PPS. If you always want to be the first to know what I'm working on (and even planning on working on in the future!), sign up for my superbly fun newsletter!
