A pastel demonstration during April 2015 of an Amur Leopard produced on a bluish grey Sennelier pastel board using a limited palette of hard pastels.

At a later date I added further layers and detailing to enhance the image as a couple wanted to purchase it for their home. An arctic white mount was chosen with a mid green inner edge, finally I presented it in a beech effect frame.
