Lazy Leopard

   B 






C     D


This is why I enjoy oil paints you can change paintings so drastically, and paint over areas that you didn't like.I was never quite happy with this painting and it went through 4 transformations before I was.I would be interested to know which one of these appeals to you.

All well done, Roger, But I really like A and B. And yes, you are fortunate to be able to "transform" the oils so relatively easily.

Probably A, or C. which one was the final?

Lydie said...

Difficult to make a choice. At home my husband prefers A, and personally I like the B, what a dilemma! Perhaps get closer to the environment in which this animal is supposed to take a nap if you wish to make a realistic work?

I love them all Roger! I would choose A. Nice job!

Thanks for all your comments,A was the final painting.

I like D the best myself, although they are all nice!

Roger Brown My Botswana Art said...

Thanks.Yes D is also nice since the leopard is more part of its natural habitat.

Hi Roger--I like A the best. I think it's the warmest in tone. The detailed ones really show how great the camouflage of the leopard is but the leopard gets last in it too. A the cat stands out nicely. Background is always soooo tricky.

Hi Stephanie,yes that's exactly why I changed the background,I didn't want the background to compete with the leopard.That is why I went from B to D then C but the background was just a little bit too plain in C so finally I created A.

I'm coming in late here! I love the richness of the coat in both A and C and although I know that leopards enjoy the camouflage of trees, I think my vote is a contrary C.

Que beleza o teu trabalho.Para mim,definitivamente é o D, mas acho que deves seguir tua própia opinião pois me parece que és um grande conhecedor do tema em si.Grande abraço.
