Tiger painting – starting the details

Well the detail stage is well underway now – I’ve decided not to go too detailed on the painting, although it might look like I have painted every hair I can assure you it’s only the suggestion I have put in – remember how much smaller you are seeing it on your screens

I’ll post some details when finished just to show you.

Stil go lots to do on him, the ears, back etc plus refinement of colours with glazing at the end.

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 🙂

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 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
