Leopard by Catherine Barolo

ARTIST NOTES: I painted this Leopard as I have always loved the animal and basically wanted to see if I could paint one and this was it. I wanted to showcase the beautiful eye and the grand urge of the leopard knowing who he is and where he belongs, overlooking the vast wilderness is the muted brown and copper tones in the background. He has a calming feel to him and gives you the feeling you could almost run your fingers through his fur coat. I find I am getting so much better at teaching myself how to paint fur and I think it shows in this piece. I have painted Leopard on a 3cm wide double thick, high density weave canvas. It is varnished, signed and dated on the back with a handwritten description of my painting.

Artist: Catherine Barolo



     Catherine Barolo is a self taught artist living in Melbourne, Australia.  

Catherine has been drawing ever since she was little.  A quiet child who would draw for hours and hours escaping life in the 1970's suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia.

     Her paintings and stories were full of fairies, goblins and all types of animals, flowers and mythical creatures she would make up from her fantasy world she loved and imagined until....life happened!


      Fast forward to 2022 and Catherine is happily married with 4 almost grown children and her dog Coco.  It has only been in the last two years Catherine has found time to concentrate on her art.  Catherine is a self taught artist and has exhibited her work in Melbourne and continues to sell her original paintings, prints and commissioned art through her website.  Catherine either works off her own photos or asks photographers permission to use their photos as reference.  Catherine loves to paint in acrylic and now teaching herself to paint digitally.  Each painting is carefully thought and planned out, subject, colour and composition to tell its unique story all in as much detail as she can.

                                                                                                                                              This is just the beginning...
