ArtistIvan Jones Pastel Artist
DescriptionI created the initial pastel painting in August last year, from a reference photo by the talented Paul Fine.
I really enjoyed creating this detailed pastel artwork using soft pastels and pastel pencils on Artspectrum Colourfix pastel paper. The sharpened pencils create the detail and the background is blended using polystyrene sticks to give the three-dimensional effect to the completed pastel painting of these stunning cheetahs.
However when I reassessed it last week, I thought it needed something extra. I looked the artworks of Simon Coombs ( an amazing wildlife artist ) and saw the perfect background for these cheetahs. I feel it added an atmosphere that was lacking in the original artwork......
This stunning artwork is available to purchase by special request.
In the meantime stay safe and enjoy the rest of your day!
