Crikey! It's Australia Zoo

My latest animal painting finished!  The photo of the tiger was taken at Australia Zoo.  I made up the jungle background from a few photos taken in Singapore.  The hardest part of the painting for me was dealing with all the greens.  I intentionally started with a blue-green, hazy background and gradually moved forward to a more greeny-green.  The foliage in front of the tiger was a more definite yellow-green.  This was a little out-of-focus so that all the attention would focus on the tiger.

  1. She's very pretty! I love mixed media, too, and want to experiment more with it in future. Thanks for the inspiring example. :) color changing paint
