Nova Scotia Bobcat

The colored pencil drawing of a Bobcat begun earlier this week is finally complete.  Earlier stages of the image can be found at https://drawingconclusions.wordpress.com/2010/01/22/bobcat/

Nova Scotia supposedly has the largest population of bobcats in North America.  They are Canada’s most common wildcat and keep the populations of small rodents and mammals such as Snowshoe Hares in check.  For photos of bobcat tracks, see my nature journal post  Bobcats in the Backyard.

Cats’ eyes are among the most beautiful in the animal kingdom.  Their pupils change from narrow slits in bright sunshine to full circles in the dark.  These eyes belong to an Eastern Cougar, an elusive wild cat that lives in Canadian woods.

The drawing was made with coloured pencils on emerald green textured paper.
