This magnificent tiger was seen in Kahna National Park in Madhya Pradesh in India. I wanted to paint him on leather as it was fitting for such an amazing carnivorous beast. This is painted on a full hide. When I decided to paint this huge piece, I had to nail it to the wall of my studio and get an old fashioned tea trolley from the charity shop to move up and down with my paints! The easels I have in the studio just couldn't cope with the size and weight so this was the most practical way to work the piece. To give you an ideal of the scale, I am 5'7" and this lovely boy is just over life size. His eyes will follow you wherever you move, don't ask me how I do it, but I just can! Many layers of paint and much observation seems to work! He is now ready to give another owner as much pleasure as he has given me in my studio each day.
His vital statistics are: 75"x64" and he is displayed on artisan wrought metal poles. The rope is hand made from the historic dockyard at Chatham. British and proud!
He is priced at £8,500 and is absolutely unique.
