Tiger Painting, Final stages

So…. after I did a bit more on the rock, I turned my attention back to the Tiger and I wasn’t happy with it at all really šŸ˜¦

There just wasn’t enough light and vibrance in it, I don’t know how I let it get away from me, so I just got out a medium sized brush and brushed a more vibrant colour over most of it. I lost a good bit of the detailing I did in the previous stage doing this, but I knew I wouldn’t be happy if I just continued detailing to the end, even though it would possibly look OK’ish. It’s only paint, canvas and time right šŸ˜‰

Then it was back to putting details on top

This is where it’s at now, I’ve put in the longer fur around the neck as well, so now I have to refine everything over a few sessions.

Lots of areas need softening and I will do that by using a larger hog brush which will cover up some of the obvious brushstrokes that look too contrived.

So still a ways to go, but getting there, it’s at this stage I find that all of a sudden after 2 or 3 more sessions I suddenly think, Oh… it’s done! Like it catches me out – weird šŸ™‚

The photo has boosted the whites a bit on the photo and burned them out. FYI

  1. Hi Jase, thought I’d pop over and see what you’re working on of late. This Tiger looks wonderful, coming to life beautifully. If there’s any sun down there in the valleys…. sent a bit up here šŸ˜‰
