I wanted to create more of a greeny piece, and as I’m not too hot on felines I thought I’d practice painting a Jaguar. I’m not happy with the results (again!), but there are certain elements I like, the big eyes in particular.

I also wanted to create this jaguar in response to the jaguar attempt five years ago when I just started out with watercolour in 2012.

The novice jaguar was painted using the same brand and materials I use today. Though painful and embarrassing to post —  interesting to see how much improvement I’ve made since the start of my website. I hope other budding creatives reflect on this and take heart!
