Pombe 2 by Heatherzart Pombe 2 by Heatherzart
Pombe 2

24" x 36"
Scratchboard and Ink

Here is the second installation of my cheetah series. This is the first

Pombe means "beer" in swahili and it's the name of the cheetah I took pics of at the San Diego Wild Animal Park. The color is a little richer with this one I think but the photo not as good. I sold this one before it finished so I was a little under the gun to get it done. Too much pressure man! I have a third in the series coming and it has two cheetahs snuggling, I'm really looking forward to that one.

As always your thoughts and suggestions are very welcome.
