Tiger II by karincharlotte Tiger II by karincharlotte
I did the tiger abstract twice...because I gave the first one away, and wanted one for myself. I ended up giving this one away as well. It's slightly different from the first.
I might do this as a big acylic on canvas...that ought to be a challenge. This one was done in watercolour and coloured pencil.

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-11-25
Now, I get a kick out of watching people take a very mundane theme (in this case, felines) and push the stylistic bounds pretty hard. Tiger II by *karincharlotte does this with conviction. Makes me grin like a Cheshire... ( Suggested by asymons and Featured by zeruch )

I'm a huge fan of primary color schemes and this one really hits it for me.

Love the abstraction...and just the whole way it flows and works.

Thanks for it! :woohoo:

How do you paint such precise lines that are all the same width all throughout the line?

How do you create such exact circles? Do you use tools from a geometry set for that?

Hi Holly! I do use templates,which have circles in all sizes, rulers and french curves in some cases. ;)

Thank you very much! My tiger is very popular! Wish I had a better image. The original of this went missing...somewhere in Giana...I might have to paint it again, just so I can get a better image of it. :hug:

wow!!! Loosing an original must be hard....
I remember one time my whole building almost burnt down, whilst i was in my room, with all my paintings....
I seriously - Nearly lost my mind.
I don't know about you, but i wouldnt really be able yo repaint any of them.....

Wow, that would be really distressing, to be in a burning building, with the threat of losing all your paintings. I just can't imagine how I would feel if my studio burned down with all my art stuff and paintings. I'd be gutted...

In the case of the tiger abstract, my brother bought if from me. He took it to Guyana with him, when he moved there with his wife and kids. Sadly, my brother was killed in an accident involving a bus and himself on a motorcycle. Not long after that there was also major flooding where they lived. His family left a lot of things behind when they returned to Canada after my brother's death, including this particular tiger abstract. It may still be somewhere in Guyana, or it may have gotten damaged. I have no idea. One day I plan to write down the story behind the Tiger abstact:) The good news is that friends of mine own an earlier version of it, and it has pride of place in their home.
