I know you as a great photographer. Are you an artist too? You surprised me Sir Adrian with this pastel painting!!! And I like that all of the cubs have different expressions, that was a great detail!!!! And there are so many spots, it probably took some time too!!! Great job Sir Adrian!!!!!!

Adrian,
A brilliant life like pastel painting of the mother Cheetah & her four cubs. Created by your artist's eye for composition, very skilful draftsmanship, beautiful choice, blending & application of your colours in bringing this family to roaring life.

Great job on these Cheetahs. They have been known to be the world's fastest land animal. I like the color and the depth you've given this painting. Thanks for sharing

Cool,Adrian!
Cheetahs seem to be one of the less glamorized of the Big Cats and you've done an excellent job portraying this adult female specimen and her litter of kittens in pastel here,my friend!
'Good Show'! : )

A wonderful image of this cheetah and her brood,I love the texture seen in their fur,especially the fluffy look of the cubs. Good intense look in the mom's face as she stands guard over her young who are sticking close by.A very artistic piece that is really enjoyable to view

I love this picture! Great attention to detail. I like that you can see the individual hairs on the coats of the cheetahs. Beautiful picture!

Very interesting but also so cute. I love the way all the cubs cling to her and they all seem to be looking at something they aren't sure of. I also like the round mound they are standing on.

Hi Adrian, I didn't know you were a traditional artist too! You Cheetah family is very nice. Love the mother in full attention watching out for her cubs. The pose is definitely one you'd see in nature. Sounds like you put a lot of work into this. Nice Job My Friend. :o) Nancy

So this shows that you aren't just a talented photographer, you are a talented artist and you paint as well! This is such a special piece that you have created, the beautiful Cheetah is standing tall and alert as she has four precious cubs to protect and look after, she is well structured with nice lines to show the sleek shape of this big cat, very nice work to create such a realistic face with an alert and ready expression, the four cubs are safely behind mom and I appreciate their four different poses as they are looking out from their safe position at their new world. I like that you placed mom up on the small hill with babies on the slant of the hill, the colors are well chosen and masterfully applied , your subjects are standing out in a wonderful way from the blue sky backdrop. This is very well created, arranged and presented and it's truly a pleasure to view!
