So pleased to be able to get back to my oil paints! This tiger took my attention and is painted on a 50 x 70 cm canvas in oil paint with some cold wax. It was quite a challenge, being a bigger canvas to my usual size, and complicated by my choosing to place the tiger large and central!! Anyway, I loved creating him, and I hope you all like him as much as I do!
I am loving the fact I can get back to working with my favourite medium – oils! Completed these two this week. Both 25 x 30 cm on canvas. It’s such a pleasure to be back working with oil paints – I have missed it so much.
I have created another Tiger and this one always brings a smile to my face! I hope he makes you smile too. He’s painted in oils on canvas, 40 x 40 cm. Aren’t they just wonderful creatures?!
Inspired by the beauty and rarity of these wonderful creatures I have made a portrait of this Tiger in oil paints. They are such noble and self-assured beings. This one is on 40 x 40 cm canvas. I believe he knows I love him!
These two paintings are a couple of elephant studies finished recently. Both were a challenge for me in their different ways.
The first – A Mother’s Love – is oil on canvas, 30 x 40 cm, and took a long time as it was a gift for someone very special in my life. I may have overworked it as a result, but hey, that’s life!
The second one, also oil paint, but on canvas board, 30 x 40 cm, was quicker to do and a little more relaxed as a result! Perhaps I am just getting more used to painting elephants!
I hope you like one or other, or both! I am tempted with a wolf I have seen as my next project – watch this space! Thank you for reading xx
