Vigilance | Cheetah Cub

By David Bucklow

Acrylic on Canvas / 102 x 76cm
  • Cheetah are at the bottom of the large predator hierarchy, so vigilance is the word they live by.

    In this original acrylic on canvas by world-renowned South African wildlife artist David Bucklow the alertness of the male Cheetah cub is skillfully captured. The minimal brushstroke shows the incredible details in the Cheetah fur but its the treatment of the animal's eyes that is so captivating to the viewer.

    David proudly notes: “When you get the eyes just right, the artwork comes to life and it is almost as if you can feel the Cheeta's stare as you walk past. Its as if he is watching your every move - as they do in the wild. It’s quite special and takes me back to the wild bush every time.”
