Sentry Falls by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Sentry Falls
Acrylic on canvas. 90 x 100cm. I've been wanting to paint a scene like this for some time and finally got around to it. Apologies for the poor pic quality- I photographed it under overcast skies so some of the finer detail was lost.

Madiba the Strawberry leopard. by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Madiba the Strawberry leopard.
I've never posted a pic but thought this one had merit. I recently got the opportunity to study a “strawberry” leopard. A cat so rare that only 3 living specimens have ever been recorded here in S Africa. A recessive gene has resulted in the coat having no black pigment so the cat has an overall ginger or strawberry appearance. This condition is known as erythrism. I’m going to paint this kitty as soon as I get the chance!

Bengal Crossing by Fuz-Caforio-Art
Bengal Crossing
Acrylic on linen. 40 x 50cm. I enjoyed the challenge of making the water look believable without losing the "quiet" areas of the canvas. I'm happy with the vignetted finish of this small piece. All focus is on the cat.

Thank you for the DD for "Ghost of the North"!
I spent some time in a large enclosure with two captive male snowy owls- photographing and observing them. At first they were somewhat agitated by my presence and flew over my hunched form in a threatening way. After a while, when they realized I wasn't presenting any danger to them, the quietly took position in the furthest corner away from me, watching me with those magnificent yellow eyes. I sat there with a huge grin on my face, exhilarated by the experience. My most profound memory is of how quiet the owls were in flight- their wings hardly making any sound at all! With "Ghost of the North", I tried to capture that moment of silent flight with the wraith-like owl suspended in space.

Photorealism is the product of raw natural talent and years of hard work. You are a legend. Drawing big cats and working with them up close, that's the dream.  Thank you for sharing it with us!
