Original Art Watercolor Painting Florida Panther (5x7 Not a Print, Supports Sierra Club Conservation)
This Florida Panther painting measures 5" x 7". Original wildlife big cat artwork by Kimberly Crick was done using mineral pigments, such as Hematite stone watercolor paints by Daniel Smith. The multiple images above show how the artwork may look in natural lighting (photograph) compared to a bright computer (scanner) image.
Half of the sale price for this painting will be donated to Sierra Club, an organization dedicated to preserving wild places. They have been actively spreading the word about the Florida Panther's loss of habitat and letting people know when their public comments are required to prevent real estate developments.
I use artist quality supplies including cotton watercolor paper, technical pens with lightfast and waterproof drawing inks and professional watercolor paints. I may display some of the materials used next to the painting in the images, but the paints/brushes/other supplies are not included in this sale. I do not sell copyrights with original painting sales, but if you are interested in reproducing this work feel free to contact me. It may also already be available in the "digital file" shop section with personal or commercial use options.
How to care for your art: it is never good to let any original artwork or prints stay in direct sunlight, including where it shines in from a window. While most art can remain pristine in indoor lighting for over 10 years, all art or prints by any artist can fade from direct UV light over time. Watercolor paints are not waterproof, avoid placing in areas with high moisture levels. The painting does not come with a frame, but is created in a very common size for you to easily find one on Amazon or a local art and craft store.
