Autumn Mist

Autumn Mist – Bengal Tiger, Watercolour. Size A1.

I thought it was about time I sorted out getting some of my artwork on here. Being as it’s the Chinese year of the tiger, I thought I’d kick off with this…
This is one of a series of Bengal tigers created in watercolour. Size A1.  This one is called ‘Autumn Mist’. I used a book that I was bought on Bengal tigers for the composition of the paintings.

I got into painting tigers when I saw this beautiful limited edition print of a tiger oil painting in a local gallery leaflet,  I couldn’t afford it (it was by a well known wildlife artist – Simon Combes), so I took the leaflet and set about copying it – that’s how I got into painting these beautiful animals.
