Thanks to Lynne for the use of her photo, which was taken in a wildlife park in the UK.
Because of this Siberian Tiger's surroundings, I named the painting "Toska" - which means a yearning, a melancholy, a homesickness. (My O level Russian, taken some 25 years ago!)
I hope I've caught that feeling in the painting.
(In the wildlife park, he wasn't on a stone altar, he was on a raised wooden platform.
A stone altar suited my painting purpose better.)
More recently, some five years back - I embarked upon a two year City and Guilds course "Creative Watercolour Techniques"
I have used quite a few techniques in this painting, from cling film, to pouring, to blowing paint through a straw!
I enjoyed painting Toska - I hope you've enjoyed looking at him.
