The original painting can be found here (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1301382).

Another painting bites the dust :) !!
Instead of painting fine detail,I concentrated on creating a light caressing the Tiger and cub.I don't think fine detail would have added anything to the overall atmosphere of the painting....so basically this piece is all about creating the illusion of depth through light and shade.This Tiger and cub are the ideal subjects for this exercise.
I used my usual technique of applying acrylic washes and then applying fine detail after.
It's painted on 300grm watercolor paper and measures 22" x 16"
I don't know why,but I had a job trying to take a decent photo...needless to say it looks a lot more vivid in real life....
