Snow leopard

Next painting up on the wall ( I hang the canvas there to paint ) is a snow leopard . I wont share it yet because the background is at the uncoordinated messy stage and it hasnt got its fur on , I will update with a progress report when it looks a touch more presentable . :-)

Work in progress . new painting . new website !

My new official website is . come and visit  , leave tracks in the guestbook please ! I love your feedback .
New painting , oil on canvas 150x100cm . The Alp is the Monch in the Bernese Oberland of Switzerland , Its part of  a new UNESCO world heritage site . Im letting it sit and dry for a bit whilst I decide wether to add a flock of Alpine Choughs . I see these birds all the time at altitude and it feels a bit naked without them .
