Acrylic on canvas, 16" X 12"
I loved painting these tiger cubs for the Green Palette Challenge for this week's topic- Wildlife.
I'm quite happy with how the painting turned out. I painted this from a reference photo, on wrapped canvas (with all sides painted).
My closest encounter with a tiger in the wild, was in Kabini Tiger Reserve near Bangalore, India, 4 years ago. It was an awesome sight from our open safari jeep, and the tiger stood about 100 feet away. We halted there for about 5 minutes and those were one of my most nervous moments! :-)
