Working Title: "Taking the Plunge" (Siberian Tiger)
Watching this lovely animal leaping into water and the resulting splash patterns from its motion was a subject that I just had to paint. I'm sure that I will be painting it a few more times yet.
At the beginning stages it is just getting the animal's positioning right and making decisions on colouring etc.
Here is the painting after day 1 (photographed at the Tosh 10 Studio on the ground floor of The Old Schoolhouse Art Centre in Qualicum Beach, Vancouver Island.
