Spotted  - Young Cheetah by Peta Boyce
  Spotted   (2011)
Subject: Young Cheetah
Dimensions (inches): 11 x 14
Medium: Gouache on clayboard
Description: I saw this young cheetah in the Masai Mara on a recent trip to Kenya. He was curled up in a slight hollow warming himself in the early morning sun. Wildebeest were heading past in single file in the distance while the rest of his family - mum and two other siblings - sat on a termite mound watching the passing parade. Suddenly, one of the cubs made a move towards some gazelles that were trying to pass by using the larger antelopes as cover. The sleeping cub was instantly awake and I have painted him in this alert position just before he leapt to his feet to join the chase. His mum is Shakira, made famous from the BBC show Big Cat Diaries.
This painting is available from Gallery Beneath.
