Tiger in acrylics

I have had this one on my list to paint for ages.  Love the intensity of the eyes.  I actually started it, wasn't happy with how it was going and to put it one side.  About two weeks later, I relooked at it and worked out that my fur colour was not quite right which was throwing off the whole painting.  So I reworked the fur and finally the painting come together.  Really pleased with the final piece. 

Tiger measures 6 x 6 inches and is painted on Ampersand Gessobord Panel.

Many thanks to Gary Jones for the reference photo.
