Under the African Sun

I like to do a watercolour in between my oils to keep things interesting.  I love cheetahs.  Fastest land animal on earth.  They can reach 100 km/hr in 4 seconds!  I walked with this cheetah called Sheba at Australia Zoo with my daughter.  It was amazing.  Their spots feel rough compared with the rest of their coat.  Their trainer said that she loved children - not in a good way!  We were out in the open but far enough away from any toddlers that might look tempting.  He also told us not to look her in the eye but when I approached her from behind, she turned and stared straight at me (her face was a hand's width away from mine)!
