Painting #17

Snow Leopard
Reference photo: Kaz Turner
Oil on canvas paper

Wow, I cant believe that its December already. Time is moving by so fast. I have been working on the Snow Leopard painting over the past week.
I have been wanting to painting a snow leopard for many months, since I started painting big cats. And I was so happy when I saw a great reference photo in the Artist Reference photos group.
Since the reference photo was made in the nature or probably in the zoo, I decided to make winter landscape background. I thought that it would be a great way to paint something new. At first I thought that this would be really difficult, but then I browsed some winter landscape photos on Google to see how to paint the trees.
For me, doing this painting was humbling, I love those beautiful animals.

And here are some work in progress shots:

Let me know in the comments what you think of this painting. This was the first time I painted the winter landscape. So let me know if I should do more winter landscape paintings in the future.


  1. I like your approach to your pieces. With the background created from your imagination, and the subject carefully portrayed from what a reference photo. The snow leopard piece has a magical quality to it, because of that approach, I think. Great work!

  2. Thank you so much! I'm glad that you like :)
