Snow leopard by Bisanti Snow leopard by Bisanti
UPDATE MARCH 1rst 2013 - New head as I thought the previous one looked like a cheetah

Initially it started as a pastel work, but the fur was too blue and I could not add more layers on the velours paper. I took a picture of it and rework everything on Painter 11. Fur was done mainly with the wet water acrylics brusches, whilst the dots were done with the variable oil brush.

Idea + color scheme + reference mainly came from this stock this picture was taken by Parides [link]


It is a tribute to Eric Wilson big cats portrait, notably these two wonderfuls paintings [link] and [link]


If you like it, you can also have a look at some of my other painting such as:
