Mary had always wanted to see cheetahs in the wild and her wish was fulfilled a few years ago when we enjoyed a marvellous holiday in the Masai Mara and Samburu Game Reserves, Kenya.

The composition for this large painting in oils recreates the way we saw the group of three brothers resting after pursuing and devouring a hare. The entire episode was captured on video film, from which I selected suitable individual poses.

Painting wild-life is a real challenge and more so when the artist wishes to capture, not only a likeness in form, but also the animal's character.
