About this painting

The title of this piece was inspired by a vivid memory from my childhood, wishing to produced a realistic painting.  With a lot of learning and patience, I was finally able to create something which met that childhood ambition. This piece is now a few years old and I have continued to work on skills, applying them to coloured pencil and acrylic. 

The beautiful reference photograph taken by @chelseavart is of a Malayan tiger living in captivity in San Dieogo zoo.

About the Tiger

Tigers are one of my favourite animals, it’s devastating to know that their numbers are so low in the wild. With around 3900 left, tigers are affected by illegal wildlife trade, human wildlife conflict, habitat loss and fragmentation. 
The beautiful, awe-inspiring tiger is one of our planet’s most iconic animals. The largest of all the Asian big cats, tigers rely primarily on sight and sound rather than smell for hunting. They typically hunt alone and stalk prey within their habitat of forests, swaps and grasslands.

In an enormous setback for wildlife conservation, China announced it will allow hospitals to use tiger bone and rhino horn from captive-bred animals for traditional medicine. The decision reverses a decades-old ban that has been instrumental in preventing the extinction of endangered tigers and rhinos.

The population is very slowly on the rise, with lots here are lots of things we can do to help, including adopting a tiger with @wwf
