About this painting

This painting is the first in a series of Africa’s big five. It is also the first piece in my venture into working in acrylics to create these larger-than-life hyper realistic wildlife portraits. I have been so inspiration by fellow artists working in this way, that I wanted to test my own skills, creating an image that blurs the boundaries of painting and photograph. I wanted to paint a piece that captures the animal in a way that you’d believe that they could move right out of the canvas. A total of around 150 hours work have gone into this piece.

It has long been a passion of mine to work for the protection and conservation efforts to save the vulnerable and endangered animals all over the world, and I am determined to use my artwork to achieve this. For this painting, I have teamed up with the African Cat Project, who’s Leopard project works in Namibia to protect leopards from the dangers of habitat loss and human conflict.

Huge thank you to @thesafarigame for the use of his wonderful photograph to reference for this painting.

About the African Leopard

Leopards often meet conflict in Africa with the farmers there. Losing areas of their habitat to farmland means they can end up trespassing on the hunt for food. To protect the livestock, farmers can resort to shooting them, a sad and unnecessary solution that can result in leaving young cubs without a mother. 
There are many projects running to help raise awareness and give alternative solutions to the problem. 
I am teaming up with @africancatproject who have a project set up in Namibia to protect these beautiful cats. 
A portion [10%]of the sale of the original and £5 for each print sold will go directly to the project. 

The leopards is the most secretive and elusive of all the big cats, living in in a wide range of habitats; from deserts and semi-desert regions of southern Africa, to arid regions of North Africa, to savanna grasslands of East and southern Africa, to mountainous environments on Mt. Kenya, to the rainforests of West and Central Africa. They even live in some urban and suburban parts of sub-Saharan Africa.
