:wave: Hi Gordon!

I LOVE your tiger! The fur is amazing and I like the way the animal commands center stage by the darkening of the background. A very dramatic work; beautifully painted! :thumbsup: :D


PS: Nice to see you here again - it's been a while, or maybe I've just somehow missed your posts? *smile*

You really nailed the little tiger. I love your colors and the way you handled the fur. Really nice.

Beautiful. The fur is so soft and the features are rendered well. Nice composition. Great job.

Excellent work!

Well, well, well, I must say it's good to see that you are multi talented, and some say good lookin' too. Your Tiger cub is quite nice really. the only negative comment I can make is that I would like to see the edges against the dark background on the left side softened a bit. That would soften the whole painting and then I would probably ask if you are in competition with Robert Bateman. He's my favorite wildlife artist.

Enough of this my friend, It's good to see you active and pursuing your dreams.:thumbsup:

Artchrispy thank you
LavenderFrost thank you
Jim Gosh you found me!, The edges do seem a bit sharp but the photo is not giving a true rendition of the painting as there is a lot of soft loose fur on the edges.But thanks for your comments and support
