Chipmunk amongst the flowers

I couldn't resist painting this cute fellow.  It is acrylic on canvas board and measures 4 x 6 inches.  Many thanks to Angeline Rijkeboer for the reference photo.

Snow Leopard in Acrylics

I decided to give acrylics another go for painting animals (tend  to use acrylics more for landscape paintings) after finding a new medium by Atelier - Glazing Liquid (Gloss).  I thought that the snow leopard that I had drawn previous would make an excellent painting.  It is 7 x 9 inches (18 x 23 cm) on canvas board. The reference photo is thanks to David Stribbling.  This was only the second painting that I have done using the medium and I really like how it works as  it suits my style of painting.   I will definitely be doing more animal paintings in acrylics.
