Big Cat Nap

Hello! Here's another ink and watercolour, this time based on a photo I took of a gorgeous Amur leopard at Twycross Zoo.

 Ink and watercolour, 5" by 7"

What a beautiful big cat, it's so very sad that they are under such pressure in the wild. This one was looking very relaxed, having a major cat nap...
