Cheetah study 13" x 11"

This is my latest pencil drawing and although at first glance it may just seem like another cat portrait this one is a little special to me.Many of you who read my blog regularly will know that I firmly believe in seeing the creatures I portray 'in the flesh' and preferably in there natural habitat.Last year I had the good luck to see a cheetah stalking in the wild in Botswana,albeit briefly and then later in the trip I visited a cat conservation centre where I was able to sit with this beautiful female cheetah and even walk with her in the was an amazing and emotional experience that I will never forget and that is why my portrait of that cheetah is very special,if only to me.
