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).
Many hours went into this drawing to perfectly capture the softness of the fur, the intensity in the eyes and the most vital aspect of Matthews drawings: perfect proportions.
The original is mounted using black core card and beautifully framed with a white box frame.
