Tiger in Moonlight, grasses and stripes

More refinement at this stage, plus the addition of some grasses (just the darks for now – lighter grasses and back-lit grasses later).

        You’re welcome Jason.
        I have painted 1 Tiger, a while back now, and promised myself i would do other big cats aswell, thanks to seeing your beautiful Snow leopard demo.
        I would love to learn more about glazing between layers, it’s a bit scary painting over details that took time to paint in the first place! so i tried to build up the fur colours by just leaving some of the lower colour showing through, but i did get in a bit of a ‘jumble’ with it all at times!
        Again Thankyou for sharing your beautiful work, Fay.

      • wildlifeart says:

        The trick is to use transparent colours so that you can still see most of the details through the glaze. I only use it a lot of yellow types of fur really.

      • Fay Carne says:

        thankyou Jason,
        I may have got some of my colours a little too orange,certainly compared to your beautiful works. I don’t know what colours to mix, for any shade, automatically, so i tend to ‘play around’ adding a ‘little more’ or a ‘little less’, which ,i’m sure, wastes a lot of time! Regards, Fay.

        It’s always trial and error with me too. Good thing with glazes is the under painting is dry so if you dont like it just wipe of straight away and try again 🙂

    thanks Jason, it never entered my head to wipe it off, Doh!!
    Am going to glaze between layers next time, without a doubt. have a nice wknd, Regards Fay.

    Wow! I just love this. It’s really magical. I love tigers. I paint mostly in soft pastels so doing fine details is always a bit chunky. When I see your tiger pictures will all the tiny fur strokes I’m amazed. How big is this painting because I could see it hanging along a lounge room wall. It would look stunning!
