I have only been painting since last summer. Here's my best project yet. I can't get my file to upload, though

Very good indeed for a newbie. I am impressed and with that kind of talent you can only go from strength to strength. Very nice colour choices.

Thanks for your kind words Chammi. I've been here for a while looking at the paintings of others but can't figure out how to get my photos to load. Finally just put up a link, thanks for taking the time to take a look at my link, Sincerely, Karen

This is wonderful! Really great job on the whiskers, and I love the eyes. I'm amazed that you've only been painting since last summer, I hope to see more of your work.:)

I should mention.. this is the first tiger I painted after buying Jason Morgan's 'how to paint wildlife' ebooks this past January. That's about oils and I use acrylics, but still I just kept reading the tips and demos in there over and over, plus looking at all the great wildlife artists paintings, over and over... then I was really happy with this one.

Really nice Karen. Looks like you are having a great time with acrylics. Love the expression on your cat! Look forward to seeing more of your works.

You know I did take one oil painting class as an elective in college eons ago, in which I turned out sheet after sheet of brown mud. The only thing nice my professor had to say about me was 'you have a natural feel for the paint.' But she didn't teach us how to do anything, we were all left to our own vices. It's rare to find someone to actually show you how to do what you want to do

I remember about 5 years ago a PROFESSIONAL wildlife artist emailed me, ABSOLUTELY LIVID that I was showing how I paint wildlife on my website! he said it was people like me that were putting him out of business! At the time I had only been painting a while myself! What is all that about? I honestly see art as a brilliant thing that everyone should at east try once :) so stuff him :) ha...

Well I appreciate having some reference materials. Saves a lot of time and paint doing trial and error on my own... although I'm still doing my fair share of that at the moment LOL
