Painting a Tiger in Moonlight

This latest painting is going to be very different for me, a real challenge. I plan to use reference photos that were taken in full daylight and use them to paint a scene in moonlight.

It’s not easy as all colours behave differently in moonlight, some retain some of their true colour others do not, so it is not as easy as painting everything blue.

Here is the 1st stage – Burnt Sienna underpainting.
