Help needed with Tiger on the Prowl

Help needed with Tiger on the Prowl

I think that he is just fine. He is prowling through the rainforest very nicely, not at all out of place and he looks majestic too. If I really must find something to criticise it would be the black lines in the front legs. They look rather thin to me but then I haven't had a very good look at a tigers legs before. I think that this is just great Linda. It is knowing when to stop that can be hard.

Thank you Sarah for taking the time to comment. Yes the front leg does need some attention - part of the furring up process.

He's looking wonderful to me Linda, his eyes are super and he is really majestic. A great painting you should be proud of.

Thank you Margaret.

Congrats Linda it's a very good painting , the only tweaks I'd make would be to change the background greens to a more bluey green as they are vibrant and it's also nice to have a cooler background as it gives more depth and variety .. great stuff

Thank you Dermot, that is really helpful. It's the greens problem again.

I saw this Sumatran tiger in Tokyo Zoo and decided to set him free in a rainforest in my painting. I tried to paint him in watercolour, but it didn't really work, so I have turned to acrylics. I know he looks a bit dark as I have still to add some hairy bits and whiskers. But as a novice painter I'm wondering which other bits work and don't work. All polite comments welcome.
