Endangered Reflections, Work in Progress 6

Endangered Reflections

Hello All,

Sorry I haven't posted an update for a while but I was in Atlanta at the Colored Pencil Society of America convention.  After I got back it took a few days before I could start working on it again.

I am almost finished with the log, I still have some work to do on the left side of it.  I did however, add a little bit of the water and reflections (I just couldn't help myself, I can't wait to get started on the reflections, LOL).

As I mentioned in my past postings this piece is done with 100% colored pencil on suede mat board (light tan).  The size is 12" x 22" and the title is "Endangered Reflections".  

The leopard is an Amur Leopard.  The Amur Leopard is native to the Primorye region of southeastern Russia and the Jilin Province of northeast China.  There are less than 100 of these leopards left in the wild, they are at the verge of becoming extinct.  There are some conservation efforts currently trying to save the species.  If you are interested in reading about them and the conservation efforts, simply Google "Amur Leopard" and you will find quite a bit of information regarding the species

If you should have any questions or comments don't hesitate to speak up.  Don't forget to keep scribbling!
