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.
