Preliminary sketch: Snow leopards are endangered. I wanted to reference the natural environment so I focused on the Tian Shan mountains. Wild tulips and small wildflowers can be found after the last frost.
I chose the Grisaille method of painting. Here I am preparing my color glazing palette to glaze over the dry Grisalle painting.
After the first glaze I use dry on wet paint to build rich color and eventually paint details.
"Senka": Because snow leopards are so elusive I chose "Senka" meaning "shadow" for this queen's name.
