Across the Creek

28"x22" acrylic on canvas

The photo reference of this bobcat was taken at Cosley Zoo in Wheaton, IL. The bobcat is such a beautiful animal. I could sit and watch them for hours. I took many photos of the cat at sunset. The low light source created some dramatic lighting that was so much fun to paint. I am very pleased with the finished painting.

  1. This is a really intense painting and so well done. The colors and composition and the story it tells... all come together so beautifully. Well done Brad!

  2. Creo que es un trabajo soberbio, Brad. Este trabajo me transmite la elegancia del felino, la belleza de su pelaje, esa actitud en la que el felino impone su poder con su mera presencia, que es a la vez ausencia a través de su actitud: ignorando al espectador. Su realismo casi me hace olvidar que este felino no es real...No me extraña que estés contento, Brad, este trabajo es para quitarse el sombrero. Me entusiasma. ¡Felicitaciones!
