I spent the morning rapt in a magnificient animal....

I saw the photograph yesterday, and the image stayed with me...by this morning, I knew that whatever else I did, or didn't do,today, I just simply HAD to sit down and sketch ...




leopard sketch 301007


At last, it is out of my system....that itch to bring out through my fingers and my pencil, what had captivated me.


Art...any form of it...is a demanding mistress. Today I had people coming to repair: a)the geyser container; b) the handle on the double-glazed window-frames; c) a leaking cistern....the workmen must have thought me crazy as I would nod at them and return to my desk in a most pre-occupied fashion!

That sketch is much lighter than this...I should darken it, I suppose...
