Well Spotted

This Cheetah watercolour was near completion the day before I left on holiday and waiting on my easel when I opened my studio door on my return. I eagerly added the finishing touches. Thank you to my friend Susan who shared this image. I was drawn to the challenge of depicting the texture of the land and also the well camouflaged animal. He had obviously just been feeding as there was a lot of evidence around his mouth which I did not want to include but just chose a soft blush of pink really just to balance with the colour of his tongue. It is a square format 38cm x 38cm and called "Well Spotted"
