Artist Comments

An art collector who is passionate about Africa commissioned this wildlife painting of a leopard. He wanted me to create a portrait of a leopard for his personal collection of African art. I composed this artwork using a reference photo provided by my client. It’s one of five paintings he commissioned from me. However, before I began working on this painting, I did some research about leopards. Here is a little of what I learned about this big cat.

About Leopards

Leopards are graceful and powerful big cats closely related to lions, tigers, and jaguars. They live in sub-Saharan Africa, northeast Africa, Central Asia, India, and China. They easily adapt to a wide variety of habitats, altitudes, and temperatures, from high mountains to deserts to rainforests. The largest of the species are named after the regions where they’re found, like the North African leopard and the Persian leopard. These big cats have a varied diet and enjoy different kinds of grub. They will eat bugs, fish, antelope, monkeys, rodents, deer; pretty much any prey that is available!
