Oil on Canvas. I really enjoy painting these big cats. This one is based on a tiger in the Dartmoor Wildlife park near Sparkwell in Devon. He was basking in the summer sunshine when I photographed him and he looked a lot more relaxed than this chap does. Somehow a more menacing animal grew from the painting as it progressed. A Head and Shoulders close up of this painting is available as a greetings card please contact me directly for prices.
