Big cats are one of my favourite groups of animals to paint. They have such presence, powerful and fearless but their eyes show kindness and I often think you can see into their soul. I love the cheetah's bumpy spots but also their distinct black tear markings are both strikingly beautiful but also have a sadness to them that I wanted to capture to represent the risk they are facing as a species.
