I now have some fabulous shots to work from, I prefer to work from my own photos if possible and I think I am set up for Big Cat pics for a long time to come.
This Lynx is the first one of what I am now sure will become a favourite subject. Her name is Petra. I chose Petra first as I have been asked to teach a 1 to 1 with another artist who wants to learn how to use coloured pencils. I was going to go with a leopard but thought the spots, although interesting may be frustrating for a beginner.
I have posted several work in progress videos of Petra on my youtube channel, Eye 1 & Eye 2, Nose and Ear can be seen in time lapse.
