Wild Cat Week

In the 13 minute video you will see lynx, bear cubs, coyote and fox. For class Tuesday, I give you photo reference taken at the site. We will be painting different animals each week in August. I will be painting the close up of the Bobcat. Have your drawing ready if you want to paint along. I will start with the drawing on 140# Cold press watercolor paper.
