Dick van Heerde's latest striking limited edition is a tribute to the world's fastest land mammal and is the result of the artist's most recent visit to the reserves of East Africa in search of the big cats which have inspired him since his youth. Built for Speed was painted after a memorable and very rare encounter with a cheetah and her three cubs in the Mara, in Kenya. When he first saw them, after several days of searching, Dick van Heerde was able to approach so carefully that the cheetahs did not retreat and he was able to observe and sketch the family group for well over an hour.
