An original graphite pencil drawing on Fabriano Ingres paper, depicting a leopard in strong contrasting light. I was drawn to the pose of this wild leopard, photographed by a friend in Africa. I have used a piece of pastel paper which has a tight canvas weave texture, giving an interesting result. Measuring approximately 18 x 12.5 inches, this piece has been bevel mounted and framed in an antiqued silver leaf frame to a total size of about 25.5 x 20.5 inches, ready to hang.
