This one took a long time – or so it seemed to me! It’s painted in oils on a 40 x 50 cm canvas. This is my first attempt at painting an Ocelot and it took me forever to find some suitable reference photos! I’m pleased with it, and I think it’s “done”. Another one to chalk up to experience!
I was gifted some new oil paint – orange yellow and sap green – and a lot of it! I am very grateful for the kindness of that generous person and thought I would use these colours as a basis for this picture. Initially I did think that it was unlikely it would work out very well with such diverse colours but I have been pleasantly surprised how the different mixes of the colours made totally different tones. Enough said, this is the end result, and I do hope you like it!
This latest picture is painted with brushes in oils on 50 x 60 cm canvas. Inspired by a visit from my daughter, and delayed by her staying with me, this is how it turned out! I have to say it was lovely to have such a delightful distraction from my art! I hope you like it.
This one was definitely stalking me! He kept presenting himself to me and I have given way and had a go at painting him. For close observers of my work you will notice that the style is very slightly different – I hope you like the effect.

This tiger looked so soft and cuddly and just like he was daydreaming. He has had a great response from social media which is pleasing as it means I must be doing something right! I hope you like him. He’s painted in oils on 40 x 40 cm canvas.
