This is an endangered Sumatran Tiger. The painting is in Oil on linen canvas, which is the best quality artist's canvas. This stunning predator is captured here mid prowl and looking up at the watcher. The model is from "The Big Cat Sanctuary" in England and she is part of a group of endangered animals who are there to essentially breed and preserve their species against extinction.
Tigers are, to me, the most fascinating and mystical of the Big Cats and the most fitted to the wild. It is sad indeed that as a Sumatran, she is one of the rarest of her species now. She has however done her bit by giving birth to two sets of precious babies, who are now also in the preservation program. You can see one of them in my painting of a Sumatran cub on my page here.
The painting is in Oil and measures 60 by 40 cms - approximately 16 x 20 inches. It is in rich colours, as befits the subject and I call it "Burning Bright" as it personifies the poem by William Blake - "Tiger, tiger burning bright - in the forests of the night" etc. The painting is offered here unframed but ready to hang on a wall. It will need framing and photos of some possible frame types are added here for visualization only.
