Johnny, the Cougar #26 and #27
Johhny is a cougar at Wildlife Safari, a non profit drive through zoo where I volunteer. I had a keeper with me and could walk right up to the fence so I could photograph him. This beautiful cougar immediatly walked over and rubbed the fence just inches from me! Such a beautiful cat.
But sometimes I fall flat on my face. I was hoping Johnny would just pop out of the darkness behind. I made mud! Partly because I used the wrong paper. This is painted on Pentalic's Nature Sketch 130# paper. I picked it because the paper holds moisture well and I was hoping to build the values of his beautiful face. .... but I forgot I can't lift paint at all well on this paper.
Stayed tuned for another attempt.
