Frost & Gold

A piece that started off as a simple study but went a little too far. Snow leopards are one of my favorite things to paint in the winter. I am really influenced by nature and the seasons in my work.

This was an experiment with kyanite, amethyst and moonglow watercolour pigments. Original Sparkles in natural light (as do the snow leopard's eyes). 23.5k gold leaf that contrasts nicely with the purples and blues of the piece.

Size: 5"x7"
Mat: 8"x10"
