Does the leopard change its spots?


Maybe the only way a leopard can change its spots is when it is featured in some artwork. This coloured pencil painting was completed over several weeks. The challenge of drawing the spots was quite intense as when you are concentrating on them, they seem to move! Consequently I could only do one spotty section at a time as it was quite easy to lose my place and when you are seeking to produce a realistic rendition, it makes sense to do one section at a time.
