and now, something completely different!

So glad you all enjoyed the crystal peacock.
No sooner had I finished it than I started this  fast and loose painting of a tiger.

I had learned from our Painting Like the Masters challenge on Painting Friends how to paint a Monet style oil in watercolour - and I so loved it I do not want to lose the skill. So I employed that technique again on this tiger.

I find repetition is the best way for me to retain a skill - how about you?

Anyway, here's the tiger painitng, I do hope you enjoy this too.

  1. I really like your style of brushwork and colour application on this one Pat. Very exciting to the eye I think. You've captured the hungry tiger look very well - he looks ravenous ... time to go!!!

  6. I really love this style as well Pat, love the layers to your landscape, and the colors are perfect. I think he looks more wise than hungry though. The patriarch of the family.

  7. This tiger is simply beautiful Pat.
    I agree with you, repet some work is, in my opinion, one of the best way to improve our skill with watercolor. I did it (and I still do it) a lot of time with any type of subject. Ciao!

  8. Very colorful painting. I also once tried the lady with an unbrella of Monet. I don't remember if I posted it in my blog. Anyway, it was fun to do, so many colors involved. You must have had enjoyed painting the tiger with those colors.
