For this painting I really wanted to emphasize the dramatic back lighting, so I created a nice dark rich background and really upped the lighting.

Hope you think I managed to achieve the effect.

Tiger Painting – Beginning to Refine the Painting

With the underpainting now fully completed I can now begin to refine the tiger a little – bear in mind that this is still very much an underpainting and the real details haven’t been painted yet in any area.

As you all know my technique is really an improvement on each layer, as I gradually sneak up on the completion., It’s really an improvement on each previous layers mistakes 🙂

Tiger Painting – Beginning the Oil Paints

Well with the acrylic underpainting, complete and dry I am now gradually going over the underpainting with the 1st coat of oils. Here you can see that I have applied oil paints to the eye areas and also the blue side of the fur.

Another benefit of a quick acrylic underpainting is that you require less layers of the oil to give a nice opaque colour.
