Painting - Drawing Scratchboard
When a big cat looks directly at you, one cant help but look inward themselves..It becomes quickly evident that you are being sized up physically and emotionally.
It's very similar to a wolf or bear and that they simply know something you don't; even about yourself.
WIth many big cats, including this Cheetah, the natural eye liner coupled with the beautiful eye colors enhances the intensity of the stare and is why I chose this subject for this new medium that I am learning.
This piece of art if a scratchboard which starts of black and I work backwards with an exacto knife to scratch off the highlights on the image.
If you would like to see the progressions of this and another piece I did (Snow Leopards) please copy and past thins link into you browser..I made a short video and posted on Youtube..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6kHuDb5YSwAfter I added color with transparent inks.
