Snow Leopards by Wildlife Artist Karie-Ann Cooper

Well here it is, at long last I've got there!! I broke fingers and thumbs not to mention pencils to get this far (that's what it feels like anyway).
Back to work on Patton tomorrow, luckily he has progressed well and it won't be any effort to get back to working on a portrait of such a lovely dog. I've got a few commissions in the pipeline now, so much for the credit crunch, I'm doing as well as I was for Christmas, I really thought I'd be twiddling my thumbs and chewing the end of my pencils (I'll leave that to Willow the dog instead - she's eaten half of them now, bad bad girl) but things are still ticking over very nicely.
After working on this piece of wildlife art I'm hoping for some lovely entries into my wildlife competition, see details here

If you like my work please take the time to leave me a comment or become a follower (see bottom of page). If you would like to win a pet portrait of your dog, cat, horse or any other pet please see my new competition. It costs nothing to enter, all you require is internet access.
If you are interested in commissioning me please visit my pet portrait artist website or my wildlife artist website
Thanks for visiting!
