Mammals in northern climates often have a dramatic transformation in appearance between their summer and winter coats of fur. The Lynx for example is a much slimmer looking animal in summer, its fur shorter, and often of a somewhat different colouration. I have had a long-time fascination with this adaptation, and delight in exploring it in my artwork. ‘Summer Lynx’ is the most recent of these efforts, depicting the European form of the Lynx, based on direct observation of a living model.
