African Leopard – ‘Night Scope Leopard’,   1.7 metres width x 1.7 metres height x 9 cm depth. Imported Italian ‘Maimeri’ acrylic paint on 340 gsm canvas.

After seeing so many images of leopards , painted in their natural colours, I decided to be brave with my colour choice on this one and paint an image of an African leopard as if it were being watched through a UV night scope. The green captures the shape and fur beautifully and the she seems to come to life at night. In the dark light, it becomes virtually fluorescent. All the way through the painting process, I was nervous of how it would look at the end, but I am ecstatic as to how it came out. It is probably my best work so far.
