OK, so that was the under-painting done. So I left it for a few days to have a think about it.
Questions going through my mind were “how can I make it better” basically. I knew the details were to come but I wasn’t happy. Tigers use their colours as camouflage and the difference between the background and the cats colour looked to great to me, it makes him stand out – yes – but is that what I really wanted?
I decided to rework the background. Then, satisfied with that, I started to add more details to the fur and bring things to life, you can see more fur details around the head and neck..
Next I will do some more to the near background and finish off the cat.
Hope you like it so far, still a way to go yet
