Snow Leopard

Here is another one of my animal paintings - the latest one. It's rather large and has been painted in chalk pastel and chalk pencil. The colours are unusual for me, pale greens, greys and blues, but working on him was a very calming and peaceful time. Maybe it had something to do with the magnificent animal that is the snow leopard (they really are magical) or the colour scheme or both, but I was very sorry to finish this one, and although he is framed and ready for exhibition, he is hanging in my home - for now.

If you are interested in more animals, have a look at my website for original paintings, prints, greetings cards, fridge magnets and key rings.


  1. Its Amazing...i've seen one in the Himalayan Mountain region many years ago...absolutely majestic animal.....very nicely portrayed...i love the colors on this

  2. You have seen one for real? One of the very lucky very few. I think, that at this moment, my jealousy knows no bounds.

  3. This is beautiful, and really captures the majesty of this rarely seen big cat. The Fallen Poet is too lucky!!

  4. Thank you, I really appreciate it.

  5. I wish your painting came in a life size wall poster/mural for my son's room! It's gorgeous!
