Tiger Painting – latest update (wildlife art)

At this stage I have finished blocking in the very basic colours and form with acrylic paint – next comes the exciting part, brining this tiger to life with oils 🙂

Hope you are all enjoying this tutorial so far and staying tuned for more.



New Tiger Painting (Commission) – work in progress

Hi Everyone,

Here’s a quick glimpse at my latest commission a magnificent Siberian Tiger in very dramatic lighting.

The 1st photo shows the initial drawing on the canvas


The 2nd photo shows that I have applied a quick burnt sienna, acrylic wash over the drawing, wiping out the highlights with some tissue whilst the wash was still wet.


The 3rd photo shows the very start of the acrylic underpainting. As this painting will have such a contrast between the both sides of the painting I wanted a good underpainting to work from – hence the acrylics

I’ve just started my latest commission – a huge tiger portrait with real dramatic lighting

Would you like to buy me a Coffee?

The blog has been free for quite a few years now, as has most of the tutorial sections on my Learn to Paint Site – and I wouldn’t have it any other way – I love to teach, always have.

However if anyone really likes the blog / sites and would like to buy me a coffee or make a donation to help keep the site etc running then it would be greatly appreciated 🙂

All you have to do is click the – “Buy me a coffee” Image which should be on the right hand side, near the top


and then just make a payment – no matter how small to me, in the window that opens – simple as that.

Much appreciated – Jason 🙂
