Original Artwork on Auction

The Caracal is a medium sized, reddish colored cat with shortish legs, a stocky build and characteristically long tufts of black fur at the tips of its ears. It is a secretive animal and one is always lucky to get a sighting of one!

This original drawing is a close up portrait of a Caracal which is Matthews most recent drawing and a new addition to the other members of the cat family he has already drawn (leopard, lion and cheetah).
