"Watchful Rest" - 2.5" x 3.5"
Now available on eBay, this mixed-media painting of a Sumatran Tiger. I used a black micron pen to draw the stripes, then added watercolor for the background and the orange of the tiger. I also used purple paint over the stripes. Then I used color pencil on the tiger for additional detail/shading. The surface is Multimedia Artboard, an archival surface that is stiff and about 1/32" thick. It can be sanded and I rounded the corners with a sanding block before I started the painting.
I took the reference photo at the Sacramento Zoo.
