More work on Lynx painting

Thinking I'm done with this painting.  Struggling to get a good photo. There's a lot of texture and reflections that work for the painting but against a good photo. One challenge after another...
So here it is

Working on a Lynx named Cuff Oil Painting on linen

Here is one of the paintings I am currently working on.  I usually have a few pieces going simultaneously.

This is a Canadian Lynx named Cuff that I photographed and met on a trip to Montana last fall.

It's a 12" x 16" oil on Linen. I've used mostly pallet knife and some brush to apply the paint.
This linen has a very smooth surface and the paint glides. I almost miss the catch of a more coarse surface.

So 3 days in. The first photo is day 2 the second photo is day 3...Still working

Here it is:
